Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"In this zany, cumulative counting book, the narrator's revenous sister devours and manages to keep down some decidedly unorthodox delicacies. 'My little sister ate 3 ants. / She even ate their underpants./ She ate 2 snakes. She ate 1 hare./ We thought she'd throw up then and there./ But she didn't.' Four shrews (plus their 'smelly socks and shoes'), five bats, six mice, seven polliwogs, eight worms and nine lizards don't interfere a whir with the insatiable child's digestive system...until she makes the mistake of eating 10 peas and everything comes back up, alive and well. Yes, Grossman's concept is, well, gross, but it's certainly of the kid-tickling variety. The rhyme and zippy rhythm never falter as Hawke's equally offbeat art shows the widemouthed girl chowing down in some humorous guises: asa snake charmer swallowing her subjects; as a pirate making the doomed shrews walk the plank...into her mouth; as a cowgirl sauteing leaping lizards in a skillet. Other piquant details include the shocked expressions on the tasty victims' faces and the droll words printed on the girl's sweatshirt, 'Save the Whales (For Dessert).' For those who are not quick to get queasy, enjoying this feat will surely be easy".

Synopsis:

In this uproariously funny counting book, illustrated by popular artist Kevin Hawkes, a ravenous little sister eats everything from one hare to ten peas. Now in Dragonfly, this is the perfect book for any kid who loves to giggle (and who doesn't?) and parents who love to hear them.

This is the funniest book on my daughter's bookshelf. It is the "go to" choice when I am asked to read to a group of young children. The rhymes are inventive and catchy and the pictures are hilarious. If your young reader isn't a Bill Grossman fan yet - you don't know what you are missing.
