Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
PW's starred review praised the "stunning" linoleum-block prints accompanying a "timeless" poem set in a colonial village. Ages 5-8. (Oct.)
Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
Ashley Wolff has recreated Carol Ryrie Brink's poem Goody O'Grumpity with her inimitable hand-tinted linoleum cuts. The colonial setting adds depth to the lilting words. Goody is like a Pied Piper when she bakes her famous spice cake (recipe included). The pictures bubble with excitement and energy as the children smell the aroma of citron, spice, ginger and clove. Serve this with your holiday desserts. Its irresistible.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Wolff takes this 1937 poem by a Newbery medalist and brings it to life with her bold, detailed, hand-colored linoleum prints. The action is simple. Goody, a Pilgrim, bakes a spice cake and the children come running, first to lick the bowl and then, best of all, to sample the cake itself. The illustrations provide a strong sense of time and place. Details pertaining to the dwellings, dress, and occupations of the townsfolk are all consistent with the colonial setting. Goody collects her ingredients from the nearby cows and hens, churns her own butter, and places the cakes in a community stone oven. As the aroma wafts over the land, readers' vision of this past life is expanded as they follow the smoky trail through the woods to the neighboring Indian settlement. The book ends with Goody's recipe. A rich vision of the past, especially for Thanksgiving.-Martha Topol, Northwestern Michigan College, Traverse City, MI
