Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-An original and quirky story about a child who plays an imaginative game with her stuffed animals before bedtime. When Donkey finds a leather sack, Ednabelle the monkey decides that Bear will deliver the Husher Town mail. Julia, who lives at the top of their mountain (on her bed), helps by gathering letters and parcels for all. The behavior of the toys is endearing because it so clearly mimics the imagination of young children. A bewildered Bear asks, "What do we do with our letters?" and Ednabelle answers, "Why, we hang our letters in a tree, of course!" The absurdity of their actions combined with the author's humor makes these characters lovable. After Julia gives Bear a CUBS hat, he whispers to her rather secretively, "Julia, that's what I was." The illustrations, which vary in size from full-page spreads to softly rounded vignettes, framed scenes, and spot drawings, create a whimsical atmosphere. Despite the intensity of color, the pictures do not have a hard graphic edge; the artist's use of subtle shadings with acrylics gives the warm feel of pastels. Children will delight in this story of friendship.-Tina Hudak, Takoma Park Maryland Library, MD Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
