Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, July 9, 2012
“Duke’s story brims with humor of both the classroom and animal-buddy varieties, and her featherlight paintings capture every ounce of Herky’s enthusiasm, impatience, and eventual satisfaction.”

School Library Journal, June 2012
“Herky is expressively drawn and adorable. This title will join the list of pumpkin classics so popular every fall.”
Kirkus Reviews, July 1, 2012
“As Herky says, “…you can’t stay sad for long when you have had a garden”—nor when you have read about Herky and his first gardening experience.”

From the Hardcover edition.
