“Silly Sally” is another new installment from none other than favorite children’s book writer, Audrey Wood. This book details a silly woman’s attempts to get to town while walking backwards and upside down while meeting new and loony friends along the way. Audrey Wood’s rhyming proses and hilarious illustrations are sure to please many children over and over again.

Audrey Wood’s colorful and silly illustrations are the true highlights of this story. Silly Sally is an odd sight to see as her hair is displayed as wild and orange-colored hair and she wears an old-fashioned purple dress. Another character in this book that is unusual yet creative is Neddy Buttercup himself as he wears a hat full of buttercups and wears a costume that has buttercups all over his body. Also, Neddy’s green Peter Pan like tights provides a magical sense to his outfit and himself as he is the one who comes to Silly Sally and her companions’ aid. Audrey Wood’s writing is as imaginative as it is silly as she puts Sally’s adventures to get to town in a rhyming prose and gets even more creative when she details what the other animals do when they accompany Sally to town such as, the dog playing leapfrog with Sally or the pig doing a jig with Sally, with the words “dog” and “leapfrog” rhyming and “pig” and “jig” rhyming with each other.

“Silly Sally” is a wonderful and silly book by Audrey Wood and because of its innocent and silly illustrations and its whimsical and rhyming text, this book would be suitable to children ages three and older since the vocabulary in this book is extremely simple to understand and playful for young children. “Silly Sally” is surely a book that will make anyone laugh with joy and will be read again and again for many years to come.
