Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
Any school kid who's ever been asked to tell a story on demand will be able to relate to poor Sarah. Her teacher has given her until tomorrow morning to prepare a story to tell to the class. Despite the fact that she thinks all night, Sarah leaves for school in the morning absolutely story-less. On her way to school Sarah is drawn into an adventure that turns out to be perfect for retelling to the class. This book is ideal for parents and teachers who want to emphasize to their learning partners that the best stories are those that are told with the voice of experience. But it's also just a darn good yarn, too.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Sarah must tell a story to her class and is desperate for an idea. As she walks to school, the incredible begins to happen. Urged by an ant, Sarah squeezes down a small opening and finds the queen ant ensconced on her throne demanding honey bread. Sarah's peanut butter and jelly sandwich is refused. Late for school, the girl rushes out of the anthill and meets a bee. Soon her hands are filled with honey. Reluctantly, the queen tries the peanut butter and honey; to her amazement, she is delighted. Sarah races to school with quite a story to tell. Aldridge's watercolors intensify the magic and humor of the narrative; they are perfectly in tune with Sarah's adventurous spirit. The pictures, combined with Harley's storytelling, will make children's imaginations soar.-Patricia Mahoney Brown, Benjamin Franklin Elementary School, Kenmore, NY

Meet the Author

If you own one of Bill Harley's many award-winning cassettes (Including FIFTY WAYS TO FOOL YOUR MOTHER and YOU'RE IN TROUBLE), if you've heard one of his commentaries aired regularly on National Public Radio, or if you've caught one of his storytelling appearances around the country, you know that he hasn't forgotten what it's really like to be a kid. The singer-songwriter-professional storyteller lives in Seekonk, Massachusetts, with his wife and two sons.
Eve Aldridge, like Granny Annie, enjoys running to catch something great, though mostly she just manages to catch up. Eve also illustrated SARAH'S STORY for Tricycle Press, and she lives in Oakland, California.
