Like many homemakers, Mrs. Jolly Bones reserves specific days of the week for specific jobs. On Monday she gathers up the dirty clothes, washes, dries, irons, and folds them--and then throws them out the window "so they brighten up the street." Tuesday is gardening day. Don't ask. There's a cow on the terrace along with the vegetables, and on cleaning day she finishes up her work and then has a nice scrub in the toilet bowl. Mrs. Jolly Bones is cheerful and hardworking and, shall we say, a bit unconventional in a way little kids will love. Tricia Tusa's pictures are, as always, a delight.
