She'll be coming round the mountain when she comes. And she'll sure be coming in style, as she whistles like a train as she speeds across the plain and stops us all from feeling glum when she paints the whole town plum.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3—In this version of the traditional American folk song, the heroine is a feisty little girl in pink pajamas, "flowery and frilly,/and they make her look quite silly." Her six white horses have names like Moonbeam and Stardust. When she comes, she will be doing remarkable things like "juggling with jelly" ("Squish-Splat!"), dancing across the rooftops ("Yee-Ha!"), and painting the whole town plum so "the place won't look so glum." A turquoise sky shows off white cowboy-hat clouds, and two foldout pages open wide like green saloon doors to welcome her. The joyful children and animals playing instruments who go out to meet her are small against the landscape, which is done in a palette of Southwestern colors. These illustrations are as lively as the new verses and call for another round of singing, using the hand motions given at the end of the book. Other versions with the same title are by Philemon Sturges (Little, Brown, 2004) and Ann Owen (Picture Window, 2003). This lively addition will surely elicit smiles.—Mary Jean Smith, Southside Elementary School, Lebanon, TN
