Description

A-tisket, a-tasket, a green-and-yellow basket . . . a little girlie picked it up and took it to the market! Everyone knows these lyrics. But Ora Eitan's wonderfully spirited art truly bring Ella Fitzgerald's adaptation of the nursery rhyme to life-bright cut-paper images seem to jump off the page. Was it red? No, no, no, no. Was it brown? No, no, no, no. . . . And if that girlie don't return it, I don't know what I will do. This is sassy, sweet, pure springtime fun.

Illustrated by Ora Eitan.
