Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Ferguson's rag doll-like heroine and her companions-a gloomy pink pony, a spotted puppy named Gino and (also doll-like) Little Blue-are on their way to the Great Harvest Festival when Little Red meets two mice who have lost their mother. Because she is "so big... and scary" to the mice, Little Red uses her magic dust to shrink herself to their size, leaving her "sack of smiles" hanging from a branch. Williams's muted autumn palette brightens considerably when a squirrel snatches the sack, the magic dust causing the forest to turn a rainbow of colors. The familiar characters and whimsical fantasy elements lend the story a Winnie the Pooh-style charm. Ages 3-6. (Aug.)

What is the best part about autumn? Is it the falling leaves that decorate the wind? In this delightful story, Little Red and her friends are leaf-boarding their way to the Great Harvest Festival. Little Red, however, hears tiny voices in despair and discovers two mice that have lost their mother. Can she sprinkle magic dust and help them out? Little Red shrinks to the same size as the mice to help them search, only to discover she can no longer reach her sack of smiles. What can she do now? How can Little Red help the mice when she cannot even help herself? Just when it looks like a helpless cause, Little Blue recovers the sack of smiles. He sprinkles magic dust on Little Red, returning her to her regular size. As the Harvest Festival begins, Mommy Mouse has recovered her lost children, Little Red is back to her proper size, and everyone is ready to celebrate. In this adventure story, Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, brings Little Red to a lovely autumn canvas filled with sprinkles of magic. Young readers will enjoy the fourth story in this popular series.
