Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-- Polly knows her baby brother throws everything, but she lets him hold her stuffed puffin ``for a treat'' as they have tea in a restaurant. Jim tosses it into the coat hood of another customer, who leaves without noticing the puffin. Polly, Jim, and their mother follow the man, who hums and carries a violin, through the streets of the city, into stores, the library, and the market, but just miss him everywhere they go (although observant readers will catch a glimpse of him in each picture). Finally, as the dejected Polly sits down on a bench, it starts to rain, the man puts up his hood, the puffin lands in the baby's arms, and Jim throws it into the lap of the surprised Polly. Although Freeman's A Pocket for Corduroy (Viking, 1978) and other books have dealt with lost toys, Garland's choice of a puffin, and her warm and understanding treatment of the story, provide originality. Her pen-and-ink drawings are softly colored with watercolors and show an urban setting which adults (but probably not children) will recognize as British. The characters themselves wear clothes that are rather shapeless and rumpled, and appear comfortably ordinary. Polly's mother, although obviously harried, takes Polly's loss seriously. The book is short, with large type and illustrations, so it could be read aloud to preschool groups, who will enjoy finding the puffin in each picture and empathize with Polly's feelings. A book that will be popular with readers and listeners alike. --Karen P. Zimmerman, I. D. Weeks Library, University of South Dakota, Vermillion
