I especially liked the cat gripping the the Wicked Witch's bottom. ( )

This book keeps readers engaged with its rhythm but also the fact that its readers have to be looking for what is being read in the pictures. I would say that this book is appropriate for preschool to kindergarten.

I like how this brings all the characters from all the different nursery rhymes together but in a modest and not radically revisionist way, like it's just trying to add to what's usually seen as a completed canon rather than lampoon or profane or radically overturn it. Honestly, the only reason I didn't score it higher was the part with the Three Bears out hunting and their guns almost hitting Baby Bunting and I just don't think we should be all fun and jokey about gun accidents like we're watching a tower of cans teeter in the grocery store or something.

Loved it, especially having to look for the people or things! ( )

This book has some lovely illustrations and a nice rhythm, but if the child doesn't recognize the character they will lose interest. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 014050639X, Paperback)

"Each Peach Pear Plum. I spy Tom Thumb!" In this engaging, interactive book for the very young, familiar nursery-rhyme characters such as Mother Hubbard and Baby Bunting sneak their way into the gentle drawings. Even young children who might not know all the fairy-tale stars can find them lurking in the cupboard, on the stairs, or deep in the woods. In the happy finale, the whole cast meets up for plum pie in the sun, where the little one on your lap will gleefully find everyone. An American Library Association Notable Book. (Baby to preschooler)
