Musical verse accompanies a milkman and his cranky kitty as they make their morning rounds. the milkman knows his hometown: He knows who needs ice cream for a birthday party, who just broke a leg, and who has a new baby. He even helps return a lost dog that's hiding along his route. this pitch-perfect, retro read-aloud's gentle sensibility is ideally matched with beautiful art that powerfully evokes an era of classic illustration.

This books brings to mind small, Midwestern towns where everyone know each other. The book is more poem than narrative and illustrations are beautiful and engaging (my 2 yr old loves to spot the hiding lost dog in the pages). It's a great bedtime book that my kids love to hear over and over.
