Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-A variation on a familiar children's game. On the first page, a picture shows a boy being followed by a dog. The only words are, "Along the path, hopping and skipping, follow the leader!" Subsequently, other animals join the game, and the text is punctuated with the familiar phrase. The merry romp continues until the group is confronted by a roaring tiger that wants to play, too. After a quick conference, the boy, acting as spokesman, gives conditional approval, stipulating that as the leader the tiger "MUST NOT turn around!" The result is predictable-the animals fall away one by one until the boy and his dog are the last to escape to the safe confines of home. The sunny, appealing watercolor artwork and benign story line make for pleasant enough fare, but even preschoolers might enjoy a bit more dramatic tension. Yes, the tiger is outwitted by the boy and the charming little critters, but readers never really feel that danger is imminent, and this detracts from the interest and excitement the tale generates.

Format: Hardcover
This book has been checked out & renewed from our library so much I had to get one of our own. Our daughter has named the boy Jack. It's a useful game to ask who is the new animal on this page? Who's running away on this page? Who's after the kitty? Who's before the goose?
We read it every night. I could read it in the dark. A great follow up when you're past board books but aren't ready for a whole paragraph on every page.
