With warm and charming illustrations by Martha Alexander, this popular song of the 1940s has become a captivating picture book for all ages.

About the Author
Sidney Lippman says, "Making an illustrated children's book out of the song is such a natural idea that I'm amazed the process wasn't reversed--that the children's book didn't come first, followed by the song." Martha Alexander said, "I've never had so much fun illustrating a book. My editor and art director said, 'No limits--do it the way you want.' That really freed me. I especially loved putting the baby animals in the pictures." Martha Alexander died in 2006.
