Yes, theres something strange, something funny and even downright preposterous on every page of this book. But its not a mistake its nonsense! Nonsense lies at the heart of many beloved nursery rhymes. Children readily accept odd statements like the cow jumped over the moon and the dish ran away with the spoon. This fanciful bending of reality is also basic to surrealism.
In this book, nonsense and surrealism combine to spark creativity and imagination. Whats true? Whats impossible? Whats absolutely absurd? From Eric Carle, creator of the classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, comes a book to make children laugh and think, preparing them for a lifetime of loving both words and art.
