“This is a book more for boys than for girls, but boys how like ‘Alice in Wonderland’ will probably find this enjoyable. It is about Anna Lavinia (the girl in ‘Beyond the PawPaw Trees’) whose father thought she needed broader horizons. So he tore down their garden wall to accomplish this. Lavinia meets a boy who named Tobey and together they romp in his land of no gravity. The illustrations are delicate; the text is imaginative and poetic. This is a book for the child who loves fantasy” – Boston Globe
A companion volume to Beyond the Pawpaw Trees
