The Lady with the Alligator Purse was published as a board book in Spring 1998 and already it has sold over 113,800 copies. We've followed up on that success with our second board book edition of a Westcott classic, Skip to my Lou, which is being released this Spring 2000. And now we've decided to keep the momentum going by publishing a third in the Westcott sing-a-long series with Miss Mary Mack. Everyone knows some version of this popular children's hand-clapping rhyme, but in this adaptation, the fateful jump over the fence is just the beginning of the fun. Popular children's author Mary Ann Hoberman has elaborated on this well known tale to create an absurdly funny story children will want to sing, chant, read, and clap to again and again. And as her previous books have proven, Nadine Westcott's playful watercolor illustrations are the perfect complement to any familiar childhood nonsense rhyme. Parents of very young children are always looking for simple, entertaining books their little ones can enjoy (without destroying), as the current market for board books shows. Miss Mary Mack is sure to find a welcome home alongside The Lady with the Alligator Purse and Skip to My Lou in the ever growing board book sections of many bookstores.
