About this title


Mary Guy finds a way to make the governor of a tiny Caribbean island repeal his laws prohibiting fun

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-- Mary Guy lives on a small Caribbean island and constantly sings a nonsense song, "Linky Loo, America Too," which drives the governor crazy. Mr. Beaupatree spends all his time making laws against any type of noise. In desperation, he locks her up in a bamboo cage in the center of the market, but she tricks him in to freeing her and leaves him in the cage overnight during a tropical storm. While Mary Guy hosts an island-wide party, the governor has a change of heart and is released by a parrot in time to join the fun. He declares "Mary Guy Day" an annual holiday. The book offers no reason for either the woman's endless singing or the governor's hatred of noise, much less why everyone else would put up with them. The predictable plot is not enhanced by the static pictures, which fall somewhere between coloring-book and greeting-card art. --Amy Healey, Chicago Public Library
