What Dat? A Great Big Ugly Book
( by David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim, Random House $14.99 Score: )

Remember your old Richard Scary books with so many details to point to or try to read the labels? This is an update of that format with a cast of the popular Ugly Dolls as the cast of players. For collectors of all things Ugly (dolls) this will be a feast for the eyes. The oversized pages are intensely busy and probably better for slightly older kids. Even the subject of the illustrations matches an early school years reader better than preschoolers. For example, there is a farmer's market with a fresh garlic stand, organic ice, and other little jokes that would go over the head of preschoolers. Each double page spread asks the reader to find at least one specific item, but that is just the beginning of the looking fun. Great literature it is not, but for some reluctant or beginning readers it will be an inviting and entertaining choice.
