A lively group of animal friends gather for hijinks in this compilation of three classic picture books. Brimming with simple but charming rhymes, pen-and-ink drawings, and luminous watercolor illustrations, the tales will captivate young readers and listeners, especially 4- to 8-year-olds. In Johnny Crow's Garden, the pig dances a jig, the elephant says something quite irrelevant, and the goose ― well, the goose is a goose. In Johnny Crow's Party, the bear sings a sentimental air, the sheep goes to sleep, and the armadillo uses him for a pillow. And in Johnny Crow's New Garden, the chimpanzee makes the tea, the puffins hand out the muffins, and all the animals dance and sing at a memorable garden party.
