This is Tomie at his BEST !!! We are so very fortunate to have him writing and illustrating his endearing stories for children (AND THE ADULTS WHO READ THEM TO THE CHILDREN!) !!! Having been a teacher of many grade levels for over 40 years, I can say without doubt, that Tomie's books are not only on my library shelves but in my heart. The gentle yet profound lessons that he teaches through his writing and the beauty with which he enhances each story with his fanciful and colorful illustrations make not only his books but HIMSELF a TRUE CLASSIC!!! Thank you so very much for sharing your gifts with us, Tomie. Love you!!
typical Tomie DePaola, great story and illustrations and always a lesson to learn. Great for a fall/Thanksgiving gift for a little one.
