Caldecott Honor 1998
This was one of my favorite reads. The familiar song was great fun to sing to my kids as we flipped through the pages. Taback's illustrations were whimsical and humorous. We loved how the pages had a hole in the middle so that we could view the animals as they were swallowed.
High: I loved how the text was a part of the artwork and wrapped around the "hole" that had the animals inside of it.
Low: I'm getting nit picky--but I do find the old lady to have very strange hair.
