Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
"A told B / and B told C, / 'I'll meet you at the top / of the coconut tree.'" Lower case, neon colored, personified alphabet shapes assume a life of their own as they troop up the tree trunk. But too many letters up the tree leads to a tumbling tumult. Injuries are soothed and all is well in the end in this rhyming picture book in which ingenious page designs further amplifies the amusement. ©1989 Cooperative Children's Book Center
