MEDIA REVIEWS

"Based on the beloved nursery song, this charming romp presents various ideas for what the Grand Old Duke of York's 10,000 men do "when they are up," down, and in between...will make an active storyhour even more fun."
- School Library Journal

"Using a classic nursery rhyme that follows the undisciplined movements of a grand old Duke of York and his army of 10,000 men as their starting point, the husband-wife team of Maggee Spicer and Richard Thompson have come up with a romping tale of improvisation that will have young readers fashioning playful verses of their own."
- Orlando Sentinel

..".a romping tale of improvisation that will have young readers fashioning playful verses of their own...A world of possibilities awaits a playful mind and an imaginative artist, who all rise to the task admirably."
- Register-Guard (Eugene, OR) and Sunday Telegram (Boston, MA)

..".a lovely fresh take on the nursery rhyme about the grand old Duke of York. Vancouver artist Kirsti Anne Wakelin does a stunning job of bringing the duke's soldiers to life. The most telling thing I can say about this book is that after it had been in our house for two days, I had already read (or sung) it aloud 47 times"
