The rhythmic text is a traditional song; it is made all the more delightful with Westcott's watercolor illustrations in pastels and muted tints. They fill double-page spreads but are not cluttered. Each scene prompts giggles and is enhanced by the sideline actions of a pet cat who looks shocked by the entire escapade, a dog who licks his chops in anticipation of snatching a morsel, and finally, the mother who faints in the kitchen doorway after witnessing the crowd. The book's large, humorous, colorful spreads make it conducive for group sharing. Instructions for the accompanying hand and foot motions are appended.
