While Mama Had A Quick Little Chat

Rrrring! Rrrring!

While Mama has a quick chat with Uncle Fred, Rose is supposed to be getting ready for bed. And she tries. She really does. But downstairs someone's yoo-hooing, and the doorbell keeps ringing. Soon the house is full of wild guests and weird foods, magic and music. And Mama is still on the phone! What's a little girl to do?

"Told in rhyme, this fanciful book perfectly characterizes the impatience children experience while waiting for adults' attention. The watercolor art has an upper-crust, period feel (butlers, gentlemen with top hats, and jazz bands), and Mama, phone to her ear, is spotlighted within a circular border that separates her from the party shenanigans. Kids will relate to Rose's troubles; adults will appreciate the staging." -- Julie Cummins, Booklist
