This is the latest offering from the team of Margaret Mahy and Polly Dunbar. The rhythmical rhyming of the text is so much fun, you'll be begging your kids to read it over and over. The illustrations are light and cheerful. The wimsical faces of the animals will put a smile on your face. Those who delighted in the antics of The Cat in the Hat, might also be entertained by The Man from the Land of Fandango.This book has some wonderful vocabulary as well: calico, trousers, bangles, din and of course, Fandango!
