9780152163983: To Market, To Market

Anne Miranda’s inventive twist on a classic rhyme tells what happens after a shopper goes “to market, to market, to buy a fat pig.” Back home the pig promptly escapes, and soon the pig’s in the kitchen, the lamb’s on the bed, the cow’s on the couch--and the rest of the animals are wreaking havoc throughout the house.

About the Author:

ANNE MIRANDA has written many children’s books, including Night Songs, which she also illustrated, and Glad Monster, Sad Monster: A Book About Feelings. She lives in Madrid, Spain.

JANET STEVENS is the author-illustrator of many books for children, including the Caldecott Honor Book Tops & Bottoms, the Texas Bluebonnet Award winner Cook-a-Doodle-Doo!, and, most recently, And the Dish Ran Away with the Spoon, which she cowrote with her sister, Susan Stevens Crummel. She lives in Boulder, Colorado.

From Kirkus Reviews:

A marketing trip from Miranda (Glad Monster, Sad Monster, p. 1309) that jiggity jigs off in time-honored nursery-rhyme fashion, but almost immediately derails into well-charted chaos. The foodstuffs--the fat pig, the red hen, the plump goose, the pea pods, peppers, garlic, and spice--are wholly reasonable in light of the author's mention of shopping at traditional Spanish mercados, which stock live animals and vegetables. Stevens transfers the action to a standard American supermarket and a standard American kitchen, bringing hilarity to scenes that combine acrylics, oil pastels, and colored pencil with photo and fabric collage elements. The result is increasing frazzlement for the shopper, an older woman wearing spectacles, hat, and purple pumps (one of which is consumed by her groceries). It's back to market one last time for ingredients for the hot vegetable soup she prepares for the whole bunch. True, her kitchen's trashed and she probably won't find a welcome mat at her supermarket hereafter, but all's well that ends well--at least while the soup's on.
