A cumulative counting book and rollicking read-aloud, full of fun for readers who love This Is the House that Jack Built and There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly

In the middle of the sea,
as far as the eye could see,
there was nothing to see but sea.

Nothing but sea and 
one tiny island just big enough for me.
Just big enough for me and Annie McPhee,
who was no bigger than me.

But what begins as an empty island in the middle of the sea becomes fuller and fuller as readers turn through the pages. Meet two wee dogs who think that they're frogs, three perky pigs that are all wearing wigs, four frumpy hens who are hunched with their pens -- and more! The lonely island "just big enough for me and Annie McPhee" might not be so lonely after all!

Praise for Me and Annie McPhee:

"It’s light, cheery fun, full of verbal and visual silliness."--Publishers Weekly

"A bouncy rhythm—and full-on shouted conclusion—can't be beat."--Kirkus Reviews

Unrated Critic Reviews for Me and Annie McPhee

PreS-K—This amusing cumulative counting tale about two curious monkeys—"Me and Annie McPhee, who was no bigger than me"—begins on a seemingly deserted island. The tranquility is disturbed by an ever-increasing list of ridiculous, and always rhyming, animals that come out from their hiding places ...
