Keith Baker displays his trademark flair for color, movement, and rhythm in this vibrant adaptation of the familiar nursery rhyme Hickory Dickory Dock. A companion to his acclaimed Big Fat Hen
, this twist on an old favorite features some serious antics on the part of a busy little mouse. As a huge grandfather clock strikes each hour from one o' clock in the afternoon to midnight, a different animal passes by, and the mouse has a funny interaction with each of them.
With counting, telling time, and a cozy bedtime ending to engage them, children will be chiming in for repeated readings.Binding Type:
