The characters in Wood's sunny, simple pen and watercolor illustrations fairly bounce off the page in this exuberant cumulative rhyme. Bloomers-topmost, Silly Sally goes to town `walking backwards, upside down`; along the way, she meets a silly pig, a silly dog, a silly loon, and a silly sheep - until, finally, Neddy Buttercup (`walking forwards, right side up`) comes along and manages to get the whole crew into town in a frenzy of tickles, grins, and flying limbs. A surefire read-aloud. (Kirkus Reviews)
