PreSchool-Grade 1?Making a classic folksong like "Old MacDonald" look fresh is no small task but Souhami succeeds in this charming lift-the-flap book. Better yet, these durable flaps will withstand repeated use by small hands. Each flap provides a clue to help readers guess the identity of the animal beneath. Following it is a double-page spread of the creature crooning in its familiar voice. This book will also appeal to youngsters interested in the various modes of transportation, as Old MacDonald delivers each of the animals to his house in a different vehicle. A most unusual visitor arrives in a rocket. It will be a surprise to those just learning about animals but older children will appreciate the humor. The illustrations, painted paper collages and charcoal, are bright, bold, and uncluttered. The text is playful, as it zigs, zags, and circles the pages. This book works on several levels and is a worthy addition to most libraries. It is the most interesting edition of Old MacDonald available.?Dawn Ibey, Vancouver Public Library, Canada

A highly entertaining and inventive version of a favorite song, with plenty of surprises in the gatefolds. The pictures are pleasantly scruffy, lively cut-paper collage, with details added in charcoal; Old MacDonald is a big-eared, bald-headed, bow-tied old guy. Readers fold out the righthand page to determine the other participants in the song. The layout of the text is rhythmically perfect: quacks fly in all directions, oinks curl up in a loop, and the biggest surprise is a Martian, who adds to the fun with a ``Beep Beep'' here and a ``Beep Beep'' there. Grand for the preschool set. (Picture book. 2-6) -- Copyright ©1996, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
