Product description


The onomatopoeia in Sutton's simple rhyming text is appealingly extreme, and it's like a natural for listener repetition, though the verses could be more distinct from one another. Lovelock's bright pictures―in ink, acrylic and colored pencil―are a solid match.
Smashing good fun for preschoolers of both genders.
