Six-ups like the distinctive whimsy and the fey touches of this writer. Seventeen snappy pieces here: some of them sustained stories: some little episodes. The author's own pictures are always integral. I like his trick of letting the young reader in on the making up of the book: (read "Beginning Bit'; and "Where Stories Live" to top infants and talk about what writers do?). Bisset's always helping, coaxing, adding to the enjoyment ("Dear Readers...the next chapter is the last one in me") Lovely, literary fun.
