Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-- Each double-page spread of this book presents a new thought on what Great-Aunt May had, from a dresser full of hairpins to a nephew who drove her to the store. There is no continuous story line; instead, the unifying concept is that all of the positive aspects of her life added up to a gracious plenty. As such, the book is conflict-free. For the most part, the text is consistent with the observations of the two young girls pictured, but occasionally lapses into adult memory: would a child think of an older person's feet as being dainty in their ``modest, lace-up shoes?'' The full-color illustrations are reminiscent of Robert McCloskey's work, yet are not quite as intimate or engaging. They are fully realized colored-pencil drawings with nice detail, but the cartoon quality of the characters is at odds with the nostalgic tone of the story. --Martha Topol, Interlochen Public Library, MI
