Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Down on the farm, Milly bakes seven loaves of bread every morning, distributing them among animals, neighbors and friends, and saving the last loaf for sister Rose. But their pleasant domestic routine is disrupted when Milly takes sick and Rose, ``who didn't like to work any harder than she had to,'' grudgingly takes over the baking, with comically disastrous consequences. The indolent Rose first bakes six loaves, then five, and so on, with the result that a succession of hungry animals wreaks havoc in the garden and an elderly neighbor goes without bread. Only when Rose learns the true value of Milly's wisdom--``It's as easy to make seven as it is to make one''--is she able to restore order. Wolff ( The Woodcutter's Coat ) effectively paces her tale through judicious repetitions. Debut illustrator Keller delivers striking art, scratchboard embellished with a palette dominated by pinks, blues and violets. She captures the homey humor with stylized compositions that freeze the exaggeratedly expressive characters: busy Milly smiles beatifically as she gives the goat bread; a despairing Rose lifts wrist to brow as she surveys the Herculean tasks before her. By the end, Rose, too, grins (albeit ruefully) as she serves a beaming Milly a slice of just-baked bread--Rose now ``only works as hard as she has to.'' Ages 4-up. (Aug.)
Janice Del Negro
Milly and Rose live on a farm on a hilltop. Every morning Milly bakes seven loaves of bread to give to the dog, the goat, the hen, the peddler, the rooster, old Mrs. Bandy, and Rose. When Milly gets sick and can't bake, Rose takes over, but she decides that baking seven loaves is too much work. When the animals and the humans don't get their bread, there's a crisis of labor-intensive proportions that lasts until Rose mends her lazy ways. Keller's colored scratchboard illustrations help move the plot along with an old-fashioned, whimsical charm. Characters are expressive and lively, and the bucolic countryside is verdant and attractive. A good read-aloud for older children, and a good read-alone for transitional readers in search of a small challenge.
