Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"The charmer first met in Little Cliff and the Porch People returns to face a new school year," wrote PW. "Though Lewis's watercolors capture an era a half-century ago (the 1950s South), the feelings of anxiety Taulbert conveys are still the same for today's readers." Ages 4-8. (July) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"With expert, warmly sympathetic realism, Lewis captures Little Cliff's hangdog face and body language to perfection; young children having their own qualms about school will readily identify with this reluctant scholar." -Kirkus Reviews
