CRANKEE DOODLE is loads of silly fun, and Yankee's long rants about all the things he doesn't like are fun to read aloud with giggle-provoking gusto. Cece Bell's cartoon-like illustrations are big, bright, and perfectly capture the contrast between calm, deadpan Pony and angry, outraged Yankee.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
