Description

Zusatztext
"Written with understated wit, the story includes such elements of fantasy as talking animals, magical berries, and young Pluck’s enviable independence. Colorful, stylized illustrations appear on every double-page spread. Reminiscent of the Provensens’ artwork in style, they have a quirky charm that suits the narrative perfectly. This book has a fresh, inviting look. . . imaginative."  Carolyn Phelan, Booklist

"The low-key charm of this story was a treat from start to finish. The droll illustrations of Schmidt's long-time collaborator Fiep Westendorp are a welcome and essential element in that charm... Disarming and sweet, the book also has a genuinely complex worldview, with a strong pro-environmental and anti-authoritarian attitude balanced rather surprisingly by a practical realization that we can't all goof off and play or who would put out fires or bake the bread people need? ... Sly and smart and not so easy to pigeonhole." -- Michael Giltz, BookFilter
