Picture Book Review: The House That Zack Built by Alison Murray

Posted by: TracieP | Posted on: Mar 28 2016

A classic rhyme gets a fresh twist in The House That Zack Built, a cumulative tale that uses bouncing verse and bright illustrations to unfold delightful mayhem on a farm. Fans of the author's previous book (Hickory Dickory Dog) may recognize Zack and his canine sidekick, Rufus, but The House That Zack Built can stand alone. The story is brought to a happy, satisfying close as quick-thinking, resourceful Zack restores order in the farmyard. Featuring crisp rhymes that beg to be said out-loud, this is a perfect pick for one-on-one sharing and preschool storytimes.
