Synopsis: FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY.
From Kirkus Reviews: With beginning readers in mind, Ziefert (The Tweeny-Tiny Woman, 1995, etc.) retells the traditional story of the magic pot that won't stop cooking in this entry in the Easy-to-Read series. This time, it is a little girl who saves her mother and the town from a flood of porridge by remembering the right combination of words to shout at the pot. Simple drawings showing a contemporary setting are only part of the recasting process this folktale has undergone. Repeated words and short lines will encourage new readers, and for that, the book is useful. It's just not much fun; the confines of the form, worked to such advantage by Minarik, Lobel, and Rylant (and Nola Buck--see review, above), make for a flat-footed telling here, and since most children know a version of the tale, there's no suspense to engage them.
