Interesting story for an easy reader. Miss Mugs babysits for Suzie. But before they can go to the zoo, Miss Mugs needs to clean. Suzie understands by page 8 that Miss Mugs "WASHED too much." SPOILER: Finally, after the elephant at the zoo soaks Miss Mugs, she realizes that having some fun is more important than cleanliness. Miss Mugs displays obsessive-compulsive behavior until the end of the book. While this is funny and makes a beginning reader feel superior to a grownup, I'm not sure if most people with OCD can cure themselves so easily.

The pictures are black outlines with splashes of a few colors from a time when artists had to do color separation themselves.

This is "An I CAN READ BOOK' from Harper & Row. ( )
