From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2 Westcott adapts a jump rope rhyme about the misadventures of Tiny Tim to create a zany book of non sense that demands reading aloud. Af ter the mischievous baby drinks his bathwater, eats the soap, and tries to stuff the bathtub down his throat, his mother calls the doctor, the nurse, and the lady with the alligator purse. When medical cures fail, the lady produces pizza. The colorful illustrations filled with frenzied activities sustain the silli ness and the absurdity of the story. The alligator purse is a miniature alligator with a handle on its back, for example. Even the cat and the dog are part of the energetic fun, pulling up chairs next to Tim's bed for a pizza feast. A book that children are sure to devour. Kathy Piehl, Mankato State Univ . , Minn.
