Part of the Math Is Fun! series, this intro to telling time has a familiar beginning (“Hickory dickory dock,/ a mouse ran up the clock”), but things soon take a dramatic turn. When the clock strikes two, a farm cat awakens and pursues the mouse, and additional barnyard animals (as well as a family of farmers) join the chase each hour. Just when things have calmed down (“Hickory dickory dell,/ by midnight, all was well”), the clock strikes one once more, and it looks like the chase may begin again. A concluding note offers some time-telling basics. Ages 5–8. (Sept.)
