REMY CHARLIP is an artist, writer, dancer, teacher, theater director, choreographer, and creator of such modern classics as Fortunately, I Love You, Arm in Arm and Mother Mother I Feel Sick, Send for the Doctor, Quick, Quick, Quick. He lives in San Francisco, California.From Booklist :
Ages 3-5. When a boy complains of feeling sick, his distressed mother sends for the doctor, who operates on his stomach and extracts one impossible object after another, from a teapot to a bicycle. A perennial favorite with preschoolers, this picture book has been reprinted with new backgrounds for its distinctive silhouette illustrations. The new outdoor scenes, softly drawn in shades of blue, make attractive backdrops, though the wallpaper patterns in a few of the interior scenes are too large in scale and detract from the artwork when viewed up close. Hold the book up for the story-hour crowd, though, and its magic still shines through. An appended note explains how to perform the rhyme as a shadow play. May this rejuvenated classic entertain children with its wonderfully absurd story and comical punch line for another 35 years. Carolyn Phelan
