Miss Mary Mack
"Hands will be clapping and toes will be tapping to this spunky rendition of a favorite school yard rhyme. Most kids -- and grown-ups, too -- will readily recognize the first three stanzas of this comical chant, but after the 'elephant, elephant, elephant' jumps the 'fence, fence, fence,' the mayhem begins... Kids will be eager to learn the hand claps and thigh slaps to accompany this rhythmic romp; instructions, along with music notation, appear on the end pages. Westcott (I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly) attacks her latest subject with great verve and her characteristic sweet, silly humor. Three smiling terriers and a cat appear throughout, adding to the rollicking fun. And a tea party scene with Mary Mack and Elephant manages to be both elegant and hilarious. Ages 4-8." -- Publishers Weekly
