Mary Had a Little Lamp by Jack Lechner; illustrated by Bob Staake
Kids can get attached to all sorts of things and in this quirky, offbeat adaptation, Mary goes everywhere with her desk lamp — "the bendy, gooseneck kind." This makes for a funny read, with text that stays true to the rhythm of the classic rhyme.
