"Flies in the sugarbowl,
Shoo fly shoo.
Cats in the buttermilk,
Two by two.
Pigs in the parlor,
What'll I do?
Skip to my Lou,
Left to mind the farm while his parents go shopping, a little boy watches helplessly as the barnyard animals take over. Well, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em! Soon he's sharing in the hullabaloo, frolicking with the cows in the kitchen, the sheep in the bathtub, and the roosters in the pantry, helping to make a major mess. In the spirit of Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond's If You Give a Pig a Pancake (the pigs in the parlor are even eating pancakes!), this lively adaptation of the well-loved song is guaranteed to perk up the dullest day. Nadine Bernard Westcott creates a riot of sounds, sights, and giggles for the young and old. As in her other song-to-book adaptations (including Peanut Butter and Jelly and I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly), the lyrics form most of the text, while Westcott's delightfully chaotic watercolors turn the simple song into a hilarious story. The small board book format is ideal for little hands (and teeth). Recommended use: Sing-along! (Baby to preschool) --Emilie CoulterAbout the Author:
