And a marvelous market it is indeed, with all the hustle and bustle of an old-fashioned corner store, the cozy warmth and goodwill of a store-keeping grandma, and the hilarious pandemonium of a cat and mouse chase. Laura Krauss Melmed's spirited verse begs to be read aloud, and Maryann Kovalski's illustrations shine with the fun of this rollicking tale
