Jan Thornhill’s trademark ingenuity brings this well-loved 19th century rhyme to a new audience in a captivating and original way. Thornhill has created an magical, imaginary world made up of everyday objects: a forest of broccoli, a beaver dam of pretzels, a dragonfly with paperclip wings. Who could have thought berries, twist-ties, light bulbs, garden gloves, and rubber bands could be transformed into such unimagined delights? As always with Thornhill’s books, young readers can pore for hours over the intricacies of a seemingly simple story. Not only will they learn about counting, rhyming, animals, and nature, but they will also delight in picking out recognizable everyday objects used in new ways in the illustrations on these pages. Pages at the back of the book show the original elements used in the creation of the illustrations — readers can then go back and play I Spy. With a lyrical, sing-song cadence perfect for reading aloud, this delightful story, paired with Thornhill’s stunning artwork, will win over a new 21st century audience.

JAN THORNHILL’s science, nature, and animal-based books have received multiple honors, most recently the Vicky Metcalf award for her body of work. Jan lives in Peterborough County, Ontario, where she spends her spare time looking for weird fungi in the woods with her dog, Ruby.
