Ice cream truck jing-a-linging Nine phones ringing, ten horns beeping In the stroller Baby's sleeping.
Will anything wake up that snoozing baby? Follow the red stroller through the cacophony of the city and find out! Rhythm, rhyme, and lots of noisy onomatopoeia from premier children's poet Marilyn Singer, coupled with chaotic, colorful art from an acclaimed European illustrator, make this a rowdy read-aloud, with plenty of things to find and count on every spread.
Carll Cneut is the illustrator of many beloved and award-winning books in Europe. He is also the illustrator of ANTONIO ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD, GETTING SMALLER, published in the U.S. by Candlewick. He lives in Ghent, Belgium.
"Singer writes in infectious, rhyming poetry that scans smoothly ... which is echoed in the busy, densely populated, color-saturated scenes." Booklist, ALA
"Cheerfully over-stimulatinga bit like the city itself." Kirkus Reviews
"A love song to the city . . . In this vibrant, terrific picture book, Marilyn Singer and Carll Cneut summon a hip-hooray and ballyhoo all their own." New York Review of Books
"A good time for all." Time Magazine
This clever counting story would also be a good choice for group storytimes.
