Product Details


The tale enthralls… especially with Hawkes’s lush pen-and-ink panels, a winsome combination of small-town wholesomeness and mechanical fantasy.
—Publishers Weekly

Newbery medalist Willard’s gentle tale has an irresistible premise and is filled with invention and imagination, matched by Hawkes’ apposite, softly rendered pictures in pen, ink, and pastel. It’s a treat matched only by Little Tom’s strawberry pie!

Hawkes’ detailed pen-and-ink-and-pastel illustrations extend Willard’s deadpan humor with just enough creepiness. … Inventors and pie lovers will find this one delicious.
—Kirkus Reviews

The story is beautifully illustrated in pen and ink with pastel. The art pairs nicely with the fairy tale–like mood of the story.
—School Library Journal

Pairs realism and whimsy.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
