This reissue of Mahy’s 1997 publication illustrated by Patricia MacCarthy rings with her familiar, infectious rhythm and repetition...The illustrations are brighter in color than the originals, and the baby is given a bit more to do...Both text and images have a whimsy that invites participation.

Synopsis

Because the baby is not very hungry as his mother is trying to serve him lunch, the baby puts on a bit of a show, banging away with his spoon and plate.
