Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In the park one Sunday, Stella challenges her younger brother to a race around the lake. Given that she is riding a big-wheel trike while Roy's toddler-style four-wheeler is pushed rather than peddled ``It was built for coasting,'' the narrator explains, Stella's victory seems certain. But the curious girl is distracted by several natural displays, among them an assembly of turtles, gulls and a frog; a group of fish in a pool below a waterfall; a gaggle of friendly geese; and a policewoman's horse. Roy wins the race, but he shares his prize--a box of popcorn--with his sister. Far more impressive than Wolff's A Year of Birds ; Come with Me pleasant though somewhat thin plot line are her polished linoleum block prints, hand-tinted with watercolor. Featuring the fresh, earthy colors of spring, these distinctive illustrations convey both the motion of the children and the still beauty of the park. Ages 2-5. June
Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
"The Tortoise and the Hare" fable applies to all ages and all times. In Ashley Wolff's picture book, Stella, the older sister, challenges younger brother Roy to a race around the lake. "Last one to the popcorn stand is a rotten egg!" Stella's bike is faster, she's bigger, and she knows she can outdistance Roy easily, so she enjoys the sights in the park while Roy plods along sure and steady. This is serious stuff to 3 and 4-year-olds and they cheer Roy on. Wolff's brightly colored illustrations are linoleum block prints, hand-tinted with watercolor. 1996 (orig.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1In true "Hare and Tortoise" fashion, older, overconfident Stella takes her time pedaling round a lake, stopping to check out the flora and fauna, while toddler Roy repeatedly rolls "right on by." The luminously tinted linoleum prints perfectly capture the thrill of the race. Sept. 1993
