    It is a great book for children and adults to read! It is written in verse which makes it fun and easy to read. Chris Conover Did a great job writing this book but even more impressive than that are the illustration. The illustrations are great! They are in depth and beautiful. Over all it is a great book.

    Adorably illustrated, this representation of the old song is great fun. My son enjoyed watching for the little details (such as the location of the hat that keeps being blown off).
