Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Ernest is a small scruffy little donkey who is longing for a friend. There are other animals on the farm, such as chickens and cows, but Ernest is still lonely. Then, one day a beautiful show horse arrives on the farm. Ernest is so happy he can hardly contain himself. The new guest, Twist, tries to ignore the little donkey but Ernest persists. Since Twist is a show horse and is used to being around other tall, beautiful, well-groomed show horses, he is not thrilled at being associated with a mangy, squatty, long-eared creature. In the end, Ernest's perseverance and enthusiasm wins Twist over and they become best friends. A lovely story about the development of a friendship between two who are very different. This is part of the "Ernest" series. 2000, Barnesyard Books,
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-A story about friendship that captures the importance of accepting one another regardless of differences. Ernest is a lonely little donkey who wants to befriend a beautiful show horse. At first the proud equine doesn't want to be bothered by the smaller creature, but Ernest's persistence and enthusiasm win him over. Unfortunately, the author overstates the message rather than letting the animals' reactions speak for themselves. Also, some of the dialogue is stilted. The illustrations in soft watercolors in earth-and-natural tones are realistic and appealing, though the donkey's ears are inordinately long. The facial expressions of the animals reflect the sentimentality of the story.-Kristina Aaronson, Bethel Elementary School Library, VT Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|

    Twist & Ernest brings a smile to your face

    Twist & Ernest is a book that will bring a smile to your face whether you are a child or adult. I could not wait to share it with my girls. We each have our favorite part, but we all agree Ernest is adorable. The story reminds us that everyone has something special to bring to a friendship, a friend can be found in anyone and true friendship is a wonderful thing.
