About the Author:

Kady MacDonald Denton has illustrated numerous titles for Kingfisher, including A Child's Treasury of Nursery Rhymes, In the Light of the Moon by Sam McBratney, and two collections written by Ann Pilling, The Kingfisher Book of Bible Stories and The Kingfisher Treasury of Myths and Legends. She is also the creator of several picture books. She lives in Manitoba, Canada, and received the prestigious Governor General's Award for her work.

From Publishers Weekly:

Denton (Would They Love a Lion?) rounds up the usual suspects, offers a smattering of mostly well-chosen newcomers, and ends up with a winning collection of more than 100 rhymes. The volume is loosely arranged in four parts: rhymes to accompany the knee-dawdling of babyhood, Mother Goose golden oldies for the toddler years, action rhymes for denizens of the schoolyard, and finally, a potpourri for encouraging participation that ranges from riddles to The Owl and the Pussycat. A few of the selections are misplaced (e.g., the jaunty lyrics of "Baby Face" don't jibe rhythmically with the rest of the poems; Robert Burns's "O, my luve is like a red, red rose..." isn't likely to capture the attention of youngsters), but the fresh discoveries far outnumber them. The gently rolling rhythm of a Nantucket lullaby evokes foamy waves and elusive whales; a charmer from Ghana soothes a disquieted little one: "Listen to the tree bear/ Crying in the night/ Crying for his mammy/ In the pale moonlight/ What will his mammy do/ When she hears him cry?/ She'll tuck him in a cocoa pod/ And sing a lullaby." Arranging Denton's playful vignettes, spot art and full-spread paintings upon clean white pages, the book's crisp layout ensures that the quantity of material never overwhelms readers. Denton's breezy, often impish watercolors (which owe a debt to Sendak's early work) shake the dust off even the most familiar ditties. Ages 3 mos.-5 yrs.
