PreSchool-Grade 2-When Bonnie Bumble ate five of her six plum turnovers she "turned over upside down." In this position, chores are difficult to do (the milk splashed, the eggs smashed). The girl solves her problem by eating the last turnover upside down, thus turning herself right-side up once again. The book ends on a humorous note when Bonnie's dog eats the remaining crumbs and winds up in the same predicament. Beginning readers will be aided by the numerous picture clues painted with watercolors, watercolor pencils, and ink, and will find the layout appealing. However, the backwards "s" in the title word "Tuesday" is unfortunate in any book for new readers. This aside, the book will delight youngsters and work well as a companion to Audrey Wood's Silly Sally. (Harcourt, 1992).

Ages 2^-4. "On Tuesday Bonnie Bumble made six plum turnovers." After eating five, Bonnie starts turning over. Suddenly, she's put her hat on her feet and her shoes on her hands. Upside down she milks the cow and gathers the eggs, but the milk splashes, and the eggs break. When the sheep nibbles her hair, Bonnie decides to eat the last turnover and turn over. It all works out. Bonnie is right side up--but the dog who eats the crumbs starts turning over. The story is slight, but the artwork is bright and amusing. Little children will get a giggle out of this, and though not a necessary purchase, the book could serve as a story hour choice for the youngest. Ilene Cooper
