Synopsis

Synopsis

If you are hanging from a trapeze
And up sneaks a camel with bony knees,
Remember this rule, if you please—
Never talk to strangers.

This book brilliantly highlights situations that children will find themselves in—whether they’re at home and the doorbell rings, or playing in the park, or mailing a letter on their street—and tells them what to do if a stranger (always portrayed as a large animal, such as a rhino) approaches. Colorful, ’60s-style “psychedelic” artwork and witty, lively rhyme clearly spell out a message about safety that empowers kids, and that has never been more relevant.

Irma Joyce wrote many Golden Books during the 1960s.

George Buckett was a popular children’s book illustrator during the 1960s.

Review, Parents, January 2009:
"In this whimsical Golden Book ... kids will learn what to do when a stranger rings their doorbell ... or shows up in a host of other places."
