Invited to tea by the king and queen each day of one week, the child quite naturally asks if he can bring a friend with him. Each day he brings animals from the zoo, and not all are well behaved! In rhymed text and creative illustrations reminiscent of stage settings, the absurd story is told.
One day a boy who delights in the countryside finds a cricket and takes it home for a pet. An understanding teacher shows him how to share his special love of the cricket with the whole class. Pictures portray the inquisitiveness of a young farm boy.
Each two-page spread contains a nonsense line that always ends with “And rain makes applesauce” and the accusation, “Oh you're just talking silly talk.” Illustrations in rich but delicate colors have an almost surrealistic effect and add a sophisticated tone.
