In rhyming text the book tells the story of a strangely delightful man who comes for a visit only rarely. The title would be fun to read aloud, as young readers would follow the children as they prepare for the visit. The rhythm and rhyme make this one fun to read aloud or for choral reading. Since whimsy isn't my thing, it wasn't really my cup of tea despite the watercolor and collage illustrations that fill its pages.
