Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is there a new baby coming to your house? You just found your book! I stumbled back on to this one. I had it and loved it too but had forgotten most of it. Pure perfection. It is not didactic but it is timeless and funny! I would recommend this to 4 years and up. They have tarted up the engraved plates with punchy pastels. The Garth Williams illustrations were lovely as black and white and the new jazzed up ones are nice too. Russell Hoban is a rare storytelling talent. I am so thankful this is still in print. A new baby on the way or not this is one for your collection.
