Review by School Library Journal Reviews

PreS-K-- Watercolor cartoons illustrate this bit of cumulative nonsense. ``Silly Sally went to town,/ walking backwards, upside down./ On the way she met a pig,/a silly pig,/they danced a jig.'' Sally and pig (upside down) meet and are joined in their walk by a dog, a bird, a sheep and (ta-dum!) Neddy Buttercup, who sets everything to rights. However, Silly Sally manages to get them all in formation whereupon they proceed to town following her roundabout lead. Bright double-page spreads carry the tale, forecasting each encounter. Sally, with orange corkscrew hair, a mischievous grin, and wearing ruffled pantaloons beneath her purple frock, appears to be able to coerce 'most anybody into 'most anything, and soon has the townspeople walking backwards, upside down. No moral, no underlying theme, no real story--just unabashed silliness. --Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE Copyright 1992 Cahners Business Information.

Readers play follow-the-leader as Silly Sally and her companions parade to town, dancing jigs with pigs and singing tunes with loons, but things come to a halt when they are joined by a sheep and they all fall asleep

Dance a jig with a silly pig. Play leapfrog with a silly dog. And that's just the beginning of all the fun! Come along and join Silly Sally and her outrageous friends as they parade into town in a most unusual way. "Exploding with whimsy, humor, and zest. . . . Be prepared to read this one a thousand times!"--Booklist (starred review)
