PreSchool-An appealing cumulative tale that begs kids to participate. It opens with Butterfly's small sneeze, which elicits a "Bless you" from Lizard. Lizard promptly catches the sneezing trend, only a little louder. And on it progresses through Parrot, Monkey, Tiger, Hippo, and finally Elephant, whose sneeze is "GIGANTIC"?he blows away the jungle. West's bright, bold, cartoonlike watercolor-and-ink illustrations create the perfect read-aloud atmosphere. An effective partner to Nicola Smee's Finish the Story, Dad (S. & S., 1991).?Christina Dorr, Calcium Primary School, NY

Ages 2^-5. With very simple words and neon-bright watercolor illustrations, West tells a comic repetitive story that gets noisier with each turn of the page. First, butterfly gives a little sneeze, and lizard says, "Bless you." Next day in the jungle, lizard gives a not-quite-so-little sneeze, and parrot says, "Bless you." Then parrot, monkey, tiger, and hippo pass on to bigger and bigger sneezes, until finally elephant gives a gigantic achoo and blows away the jungle. Toddlers will join in with all the sounds, and they'll get the idea of the sneeze that gets bigger and louder. Hazel Rochman
