    1. Fun, fun, fun rhyme with phrases that kids will love to repeat long after reading the book or having it read to them The illustrations and story are a hoot There is an informative note at the end about the real artist, which sort of makes this an art and historical fiction book as well as a pure fiction picture book I love the two main characters and the story arc Flamboyantly entertaining.

    2. I really enjoyed both the illustrations and story Hieronymus Bosch was a real artist who died in 1516 He drew and painted pictures of people and objects acting in strange ways and twisted to creative shapes I had never heard of him before reading this Willard turned this into a fun poetic story of an artist with unusual creatures creating havoc in his home The Dillons created amazing artwork that really complements and completes the story Wonderfully done Quite magical I also enjoyed the informa [...]

    3. Sadly, I was underwhelmed with the story poem as well as many of the creatures in the illustrations Still, it s a lovely book to introduce kids to art history.

    4. This is a strange tale filled with remarkable creatures and odd images The first page has no illustration other than within the text, and I find this very exciting in a suspenseful kind of way However, the rest of the book is laid out rather specifically on the left page is the text in a colorful font that was hand lettered by the illustrators, and directly above the text is an image that appears to be sketched and generally faces the right page in a fashion that implies motion to progress the s [...]

    5. This is an entertaining, fantastic tale poem that is fun to read aloud The illustrations by Leo Dillon and Diane Dillon are wonderful, as I expected from the Caldecott Medal winning illustrators The rhyming, lyrical narrative is quite humorous, if a bit strange We really enjoyed reading this book together and I enjoyed reading the note at the end of the book that explained that Hieronymous Bosch was a real person, an artist who lived in the 15th century I never knew

    6. Once again this book had a very good story line and included a good amount of language play but the book had too many difficult words I think that this story would be another teacher read aloud because it would be too difficult for a young student learning to read I do like how many of the letter sounds are highlighted throughout the story.

    7. Cute story, but had to give it 5 stars because of the artwork alone Probably the most gorgeous illustrations also, the way they placed each illustration inside a beautiful sculpted metal frame their son made I ve come upon in years.

    8. I won t lie this was a strange book, which considering the subject matter shouldn t have surprised me, I guess, but it did The book focuses on the life and work of Hieronymus Bosch a Dutch painter in the late thirteenth century His work was highly unusual for the time, featuring bizarre imaginary subjects people, creatures, and objects morphed together in grotesque or comical ways The author chose to make the story as bizarre as Bosch s work, which made it hard for me to enjoy That being said, t [...]

    9. The Dillons have given us an amazingly detailed and inventive set of illustrations in homage to Bosch as well.

    10. On a rainy morning that I had hoped would be clear, I read Pish, Posh said Hieronymus Bosch Curious, the book s heroine wanted something other than what she had three legged thistles asleep in my wash and riding to shops on a pickle winged fish as well.Reading it quite cheered me up The illustrations are glorious and Nancy Willard s trademark fancifulness proved just the thing Willard died this week, and I sought out one children s book and one book of essays I have read both for the last thirty [...]

    11. Pish Posh Hieronymus Bosch is an ingenious tale about the unconventional fifteenth century Flemish painter Hieronymus Bosch, as told by his wildly dissatisfied housekeeper In Willard s playful poem, the artist s housekeeper is vexed to the max by such distractions as a beehive in boots and a pear headed priest who call monkeys to order and lizards to feast , but ultimately accepts that her lot and her affections lie with Bosch and his menagerie, however maddening.Caldecott Medalists Leo and Dian [...]

    12. Pish, Posh, Said Hieronymus Bosch is an imaginative story about Hieronymus Bosch, an artist from the late 1450s The illustrations in the story were created by Lee Dillon in the style of those of the actual Hieronymus Bosch The author s notes at the end of the book explain author Nancy Willard s fascination with the odd creatures from Bosch s original sketches Illustrator Lee Dillon also studied Bosch s work The resulting book, Pish, Posh, Said Hieronymus Bosch is a great example of stylization o [...]

    13. Hieronymus Bosch is a man with eclectic, not to mention eccentric, tastes While they suit him just fine, his wife is the one who has to run an insane house full of monstrous magical creatures Too this Hieronymus just says, Pish Posh Can love conquer the weirdness, or should Mrs Bosch forsake her husband and his odd ways The illustrations in this book are amazing They are reminiscent of James C Christiansen and maybe a little N.C Wyeth in their complexity and rich color The beautiful artwork and [...]

    14. In Pish Posh said Hieronymus Bosch there are strange creatures that aren t seen in other stories set in the fifteenth century or any century for that matter, at least as far as I know This story may contain odd creature but that does not change its fifteenth century feel Its story is told in rhyme as a poem similar to a nursery rhyme Its images and story are based off a real fifteenth century artist named Hieronymus Bosch The illustrations are framed within a silver, bronze, and bass frame which [...]

    17. Leo and Diane Dillon, winners of numerous awards for their illustrations, most recently the beautifully rendered NEVER FORGOTTEN, are heavily influenced by the work of Hieronymous Bosch This one is not to be missed by fans of the Dillons or by fans of the picture book genre Bosch, known the quirky and eccentric themes of his paintings is brought to life by the Dillons in illustrations, each with a gilded, ornate frame The verse that accompanies the illustrations help this 1991 classic ring out l [...]

    18. My nearly seven year old son and I enjoyed reading this very silly and beautifully illustrated book together The illustrations are based on images in the work of the real Hieronymus Bosch, and the rhyming text is full of wordplay Fair warning Bosch s housekeeper runs away because she can t stand the strange creatures messing with her work but the animals follow her, and she realizes she would miss them Returning, she apparently also agrees to marry Bosch So, read with discretion this could reinf [...]

    19. An interesting project to say the least Bosch for kids The pictures aren t Bosch paintings but they are inspired by the surrealist elements of Bosch and Bosch himself is a character The main character, however, is a woman who is his domestic servant Or wife It was hard to tell Sure seemed heavy on the sex roles, but if the protagonist were a man I would have read it as an eccentric noble vs his long suffering manservant That may be a appropriate reading.At any rate, the rhyming and such is fun [...]

    20. The Dillons use frames very intentionally in their books often to restrain the movement in the illustration In this book, they are using a frame that was actually sculpted designed by their son what strikes me is that in this book, even the frame is busy There is a riot of activity, color, and strange creatures in each illustration all in homage to Hieronymus Bosh himself who would have felt right at home Willard s story is perfect.

    21. Most kids looking at this book probably sit there for minutes trying to pronounce the book which then makes them want to read the book so that is a good eye catching title When i read this book i thought to myself man i wish when i was a kid i would have known about this book or even liked to read back then All of the cool creatures and flying furniture and what not in this book make this an interesting read that you just want to look at the pictures.

    22. This isn t really anything to do with the historical personage, just a rather silly poem inspired by his art The Dillons Boschean illustrations are totally worth a look, though Appealing for both adult fans of the artist and children who like searching out details in illustrations All or most of the panels appear to be viewable online.

    23. The quirky illustrations in this small picture book alone are with 5 stars I only wish there had been a bit information on Hieronymus Bosch in the afterword Super fun read that children and adults alike will want to revisit again and again, something new to focus on each time you study the pictures Eccentric goodness

    24. Wow You d have to be insane to write a kid s book about Hieronymus Bosch But I loved it And so did my 5 year old Whimsical and witty, this rhyming book is fantastic My little boy loved it and was fascinated by the pictures Well, done Update Just read this to the whole family and everyone loves it We pored over the pictures.

    25. Although this is technically a children s book, any art historian or adult can appreciate its value outside a young mind I was fortunate enough to have received this as a gift a few years back after first browsing through it well over a decade ago I believe it is out of print, so good luck finding a copy it will be well worth it.

    26. Beautiful illustrations, and wow the bronzework The book would probably be fun to read aloud butI just thought it was too self indulgent and had absolutely no engaging storyline.
