Barnes and Camburn have teamed up again in Teeny Tiny Ernest. In this good-humored tale, Ernest obsesses about his small size, only to learn that his friends love him just the way he is. Carol Camburn's whimsical illustrations capture the expressiveness of real animals. And for kids who want more stories of Ernest and his buddies, there's good news—Twist and Ernest. 2000, Barnesyard, $15.95. Ages 3 to 8. Reviewer: Mary Quattlebaum
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Wishing he were taller, a little donkey tries to compensate for his short stature by standing on a little hill, which doesn't fool the cows. Ernest then tries standing on the ramp to the stable and stretching his neck way up high, but he doesn't fool Travis the horse either. Travis, however, notices that something is wrong and asks why Ernest is upset. When the donkey tells him that he is tired of being so tiny, Travis replies, "Well yes, I guess you are smaller.-I never noticed before." When questioned, the cows agree that they never noticed it before either. The animals relay the age-old message-"Size doesn't matter. It's who you are that matters," and Ernest realizes that he is special. Camburn's pale pen-and-ink illustrations assign plenty of personality to the barnyard animals. Both the story and the illustrations have a light, airy feel to them. Children will enjoy reading and listening to this book.-Lisa Gangemi Krapp, Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
From The Critics
Teeny Tiny Ernest is the store of the friendship between Ernest (a determined and pure-hearted donkey) and Twist (a proud, showy, thoroughbred horse). Ernest's amusing antics at trying to look taller to impress his friends evolves into an inspiring tale of self-realization and a better understanding of true happiness as he confronts and overcomes his sadness at being so small, and realizing that who you really are comes from the inside. Laura Barnes entertaining and thoughtful story is wonderfully illustrated and enhanced with Carol Camburn's beautiful artwork. Ideal reading for ages 4 to 9. Also highly recommended for school and community library picturebook collections for young readers is Barnes and Camburn's first book, Twist And Ernest (0-9674681-0-8, $15.95).
