Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"It’s still relatively early in the year, as many of us wait to see what 2014 will bring us in the realm of brand-new picture books, but as we wait to see new titles, I’m glad to see publishers like this, restoring older books with such passion and attention – taking gentle care, that is, of our rich picture book heritage." - Kirkus Reviews

"In her text and arresting drawings, Ms. Ipcar shows old-fashioned respect for the ability of children to appreciate specificity: As a farmer, the boy yearns not merely for "cattle" but for "Guernsey cows, Jersey cows, Holsteins, and Dutch-belted cows."-The Wall Street Journal

Meet the Author


Dhalov Ipcar: Dahlov Ipcar was born in Windsor, Vermont in 1917 and brought up in Greenwhich village, New York. She has lived on a small dairy farm in Georgetown, Maine, since 1937; a place that has inspired many of her stories and art works. Over the last four decades she has written and illustrated over 30 children's books including Farmyard Alphabet which won the NEIBA President's Award in 2010. Pieces of her art are displayed in the permanent collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Whitney Museum of Modern Art. She won the Kerlan Award for Children's literature and has been given three honorary degrees at The University of Maine, Colby and Bates colleges.

In addition to easel paintings, illustrations, and soft sculptures, Dahlov has also completed ten large scale mural projects for public buildings, two for U.S. Post Offices in LaFollette, Tennessee and Yukon, Oklahoma. At the age of 95, Dahlov Ipcar still continues to draw in her hometown in Maine.
