Product Details


“Boglar’s tale has the timeless feel of Jeanne Birdsall’s The Penderwicks (2005) or an E. Nesbit book: the children are exceedingly independent, and the adults are bafflingly childish. Butenko’s simple but cartoonish bright red line drawings accentuate the book’s lighthearted, puckish tone. . . the farcical action building to the book’s major conceit is sure to elicit a giggle.” — Booklist

“A summer holiday adventure full of humor, surprises, and mistaken identities​.” — Foreword Reviews

“Butenko’s playful, humorous illustrations reflect Poland’s tradition of outstanding art for children. . . The forest’s enduring majesty looms in powerful contrast over the scurrying characters engrossed in their worries and plans. The village of Saint Jude’s—where shoes are for indoors, kids adore mushrooms, and dessert’s a once-a-week treat—will feel exotic to young American readers.
A rare glimpse of childhood in a vanished world: Soviet-dominated, rural Poland.” — Kirkus Reviews

“A dizzying dance.” — Ricochet Jeunes
