Who Woke the Baby?

(3) PS Illustrated by Charles Fuge. A baby gorilla is awakened--"smelly and yelly / and all forlorn"--by a hippo's yawn. In this cumulative rhyme, each jungle animal is awakened by another; what starts as a grumpy day becomes a happy day for all. Effective use of white space and creative placement of the large watercolor and ink illustrations of the animals add to the appeal.
