It’s off to the kitchen for a snack, to the bathroom for toothbrushing, to the bedroom for a story. And just as the child begins to read, the tour guide looks out the window and shouts, “More coming!” Busloads and carloads of vacationing hamsters stream through the front door, and the escapades accelerate from one action-packed page to the next, as the countdown continues.

But with a little concentration—and a lot of pepper—the rag man tries to sneeze everything right: “Katchoo! Katchim! Katcham! Katchibble! Fumadiddle! Skedaddle! Fiddle-faddle!” Hilariously reillustrated by Bruce Ingman, this classic Golden Book will delight a new generation.
