Dunbar's flower-patterned chair is wonderfully ordinary . They love the part where one of the twins is found down the back of the chair! I love Margaret Mahy's beautiful use of vocabulary and her creative genius in storytelling.

Dunbar's flower-patterned chair is wonderfully ordinary, and its plainness is in perfect contrast to the zany creatures and objects that spring forth from it. The watercolor and cut-paper illustrations are expressively detailed and whimsical, a superb match for the buoyant and breezy verse as it, too, flies this way and that.

Read this to my kindergarten students and then had them create their own chairs with craft supplies.
It's so easy
I had heard of this book years ago as I would have bought it for my grands who are now too old to fully appreciate it. It will, however , now go to my youngest grand but will have to wait until he is a bit older.

This book is pretty good. At least my five year old son did request for me to read it a second time.

Hilarious. My five-year-old LOVES this book. "Rack and ruin" is his new favorite phrase. Tons of new vocabulary here, as well as interesting alliterations and non-standard, refreshing rhymes. The rhythm of the text makes for a fun read-aloud. Illustrations and text placement are highly engaging. HIGHLY recommended.

I really don't like this book. It doesn't flow and really isn't funny. It will be donated to our local library
The rhyme, the illustrations, the story! Such beauty! (I love the cut-watercolor illustrations the best). Such rhythm and deep truth, though funny and cute! 5 stars!!!
