Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The Birdseyes extend a popular song's context with an original story about a much-anticipated visit. As in Tom Birdseye's Airmail to the Moon, the characters are hillbilly folk; upon hearing that their dear friend Tootie will soon "be comin' round the mountain," they prepare the youngest members of the clan for her arrival. Prompted by such questions as "Will Tootie come by train?" Papa Sweet launches into a choral response: "She'll drive her old jalopy when she comes (Beep! Beep!)." As the song progresses, the vision of a kindred spirit to the mountain folk is conjured up: "She'll be wearing jeans and slop boots,"and "She'll bring her old pig Clovis"-nay, "She'll bring all of her farm critters when she comes." Most telling of all is the "Yahoo!" she'll yell when she arrives. But when a tall redhead pulls up in a sleek car and makes her entrance in heels and evening gloves, everyone wonders if this glamorous woman could really be Tootie-until she utters her signature salutation. Glass's jiggly, bony figures aptly project the rustic, rollicking hoopla of the song; on the other hand, readers should be prepared to expend a lot of energy plowing through the exhaustive, rowdy verses and the multiple yahoos. Ages 3-8.

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3-Anticipating the arrival of their old friend Tootie, Oma and Opa Sweet use this old song to prepare the young twins for her visit. However, this rather rural Appalachian family is quite surprised to be met by a very modern Tootie dressed not in "jeans and slop boots," but in long silk gloves, but who nonetheless belts out a "Yahoo" as greeting. Glass's full-color cartoon illustrations and large format add just the right rusty twang to the Birdseyes' delightful homespun colloquialisms for a rip-roaring, "Lorda' mercy! Yahoo" group read/sing. Background information on the song is included in a preliminary authors' note, and the eight verses incorporated into the narrative are listed with the musical score at the back of the book.

I checked this out of the library and my kids love singing "She'll be Comin Round the Mountain" as we turn the pages. I was sad to see it's out of print, but the copy I purchased should give me years of use.

Cute story, but not exactly what I thought it was going to be. Still...I will hold onto it. My first graders will probably like it. Came quickly and in good condition.

Love it! I was a public school music teacher. I used this book to remind my students what folk instruments looked like! The illustrations are wonderful!

this is really dated and although the illustrations are cute, my granddaughter, who loves this song, couldn't relate to it.
