Praise For Shoo Fly! (Iza Trapani's Extended Nursery Rhymes)

Take a perky song, extend it, surround it with effervescent illustrations, and you have a winner. An intrepid little mouse spends quite a while fighting a very persistent fly. At the end of the battle of wits, both youngsters are lovingly tucked into bed by their respective parents. The illustrations are sure to delight as familiar household items figure in the skirmish. When rather traditional mouse parents tuck in their wee child, observant readers will enjoy the sponge-and-crayon bed and cork hobbyhorse. The music and words to all of the verses are included on the last page. Any library with Trapani fans will want a copy of Shoo Fly! and those who haven't tried her previous adaptations could start with this one.
