The antic never quite quit as a parade of animals sell their wares in this wildly illustrated version of the familiar alphabet ditty and ball-bouncing game. Young readers will delight in meeting such characters as Barbara, the bear with balloons for sale in Brazil; New York Ned, the newt who owns a noodle emporium, and finally the zipper-selling Zambian zebra and zebu, Zelda and Zach.
Jane Bayer was inspired to write this book by a playground game that she played as a child growing up, and realized that it would be a fun and familiar way to introduce readers to new words and animals. Steven Kellogg has illustrated many picture books, most notably the Pinkerton series and TheIsland of the Skog. He lives in Norwalk, Connecticut."
