Synopsis

At No. 1, Mrs. McQueen

Her house is large and painted green, And inside there resides a Queen, With royal ears and regal chin, She always wears a noble grin.
For every child born to one of her friends, Annette Fienieg used to make a colorfully decorated teeshirt, with a character you would fall in love with.
Now it is time to introduce those creations - Mrs. McQueen Fifi LaPointe, Johnny Deck, Lightfingers Louie and more-- to a wider audience.  From the same team who produced The Man in the Clouds.

The too-facile verse is out of step with the delicacy of the portraits, as in the poem that accompanies the concluding portrait of Meinderts and Fienieg’s home: “The best house is last and it’s mine,/ Here I write poems that I think are quite fine.”
