School Library Journal - 04/01/2015 PreS-K—Willis takes six traditional rhymes and gives them a new twist by successfully rescuing each character through the arrival of the nursery-rhyme ambulance. "Here comes the ambulance! It's on its way./Who's had an accident in Storyland today?/Driver, put your foot down. Don't waste time./This is an Emergency Nursery Rhyme." It rescues a cow that has tripped over the moon, Rock-a-bye Baby in a compost heap, and even manages to put the shattered Humpty Dumpty together again using jam and bread. Stewart's mixed-media cartoon illustrations are done in a cheerful palette and have a child-friendly quirkiness. Children would need to be familiar with the original rhymes to appreciate the parodies, but hopefully they would be. VERDICT While not an essential purchase, this book could make a nice complement to a nursery rhyme-themed storytime.—Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ - Copyright 2015 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
