Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This ebullient take on a familiar nursery song features a cozy pastoral setting and a winsome cast. Readers follow a boy around the barnyard as he feeds his pets (cat, pig, goat, duck, etc.), and all join in for an impromptu parade that culminates with a tractor ride and a festive picnic. Each turn of the page introduces a new verse, a new animal and a new sound ("pig went griffy-gruffy"; "goose went swishy-swashy"), making this a particularly satisfying read-aloud. Sweet's buoyant watercolors are the perfect complement to the cumulative "Old MacDonald"-style text. Framed by cheerily dotted borders, animals are introduced on left-hand pages; opposite, they frolic in full-page scenes. Youngsters will delight in the clever foreshadowing of coming attractions--the pig's entrance, for example, is preceded by a glimpse on the previous page of pink hindquarters and a curly tail. Music is included. Ages 2-6.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-- A child feeds all the barnyard animals named in the traditional song, and they join him and his family at a summer picnic. This is the bright, broadly drawn kind of book that preschoolers enjoy and ask for again and again. Youngsters can name the animals, which are labeled and shown one at a time in full-page watercolors. They can follow the hero in the simple story or sing along to the music offered on the last page. A fine, fresh rendition of a folk favorite. --Rachel Fox, Port Washington Public Library, NY

More About the Author

Melissa Sweet has illustrated nearly 100 children's books from board books to picture books and nonfiction titles. Her collages and paintings have appeared in the New York Times and Martha Stewart Living, on Madison Park Greetings and Smilebox cards, and on a line of eeBoo toys. She received a Caldecott Honor Medal for a River of Words by Jen Bryant
and two New York Times Best Illustrated citations.

In BALLOONS OVER BROADWAY: The True Story of the Puppeteer of Macy's Parade, Sweet uses her trademark mixed-media illustrations and a clear but charming text ("Tony Sarg, rhymes with aargh") to explain the various versions of puppets and balloons Sarg made for the parade, each better than the last, until finally creating the helium-filled balloons we see today. With a gorgeous palette, sidebars of diagrams, archival photographs, and newspaper clippings, Sweet explores the legacy of a creative, fun-loving man who imbued his work with his own playful sensibility and joie de vivre.

Melissa lives with her husband and dogs in Rockport, Maine. For more information, visit www.melissasweet.net.
