Old Cricket tells his missus why he can't fix the roof -- "I woke with a creak in my knee, dear wife."
He tells Cousin Katydid why he can't pick berries -- "I woke with a creak in my knee and a crick in my neck."
He tells Uncle Ant why he can't harvest corn -- "I woke with a creak in my knee, a crick in my neck, and a crack in my back....I'm off to see Doc Hopper."
But before he gets there, Old Crow comes calling. "Caw-caw-caw," he says, hungrily. And caw is one C-word Old Cricket can't relish.
The creators of Sailor Moo present a second critter comedy, full of wordplay and antic animation.
Lisa Wheeler's many funny books include two illustrated by Frank Ansley: Wool Gathering: A Sheep Family Reunion and Turk and Runt, and, with Ponder Goembel, Sailor Moo. These, and other books, are listed on her Web site, www.lisawheelerbooks.com.She lives with her family in Brownstown, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit.
