About this title


Mary's mother waved for a taxi. Two bicyclists waved back at her. Three boys waved at the bicyclists . . . and so on, until fifteen taxi drivers wave at everybody waving at them. A fresh and funny concept book that will have young listeners waving and counting. Full-color illustrations.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 This inventive counting book will delight not only city folk, but many other grownups and children as well. Mary's mother waves for a taxi, and two bicyclists wave back. Soon, in this cumulative nonsense tale, mounted police, girl scouts, and many others are waving, including 15 taxicab drivers waving at everybody waving at them! Mother and daughter resign themselves to walking home. This book has the economy, originality, and humor of Pat Hutchins' Rosie's Walk (Macmillan, 1968) and will make even the younger children smile. A frieze of city buildings in gray and black decorates the back ground on each page. Many number de tails, jokes, and puzzles are penciled in for sophisticated readers to enjoy. Against this unobtrusive background moves a jolly cast of characters painted in bright watercolors. Taxicab yellow accents escort readers from page to page. The ethnic diversity and individ uality of a large city has been captured for young readers in a book to which they will surely return. An unusually attractive, humorous working of one of our oldest picture book genres. Anna Biagioni Hart, Sherwood Regional Li brary, Alexandria, Va.
