Editorial Reviews

"A satisfying, well-aged slice of American lore." -Publishers Weekly"A little-known piece of American history is at the center of this humorous story. When the people of Cheshire, MA, hear that President Jefferson is eating cheddar made in Norton, CT, instead of their own, they decide to do something about it. Against all odds, they make a 1235-pound wheel of cheese and ship it to the president, who declares it the best that he has ever tasted." -School Library Journal"The author and illustrator bring to life an incident right out of history in this droll picture book enhanced by lively, color-washed pen-and-ink drawings . . . A humorous tale with a wide range of appeal and uses in and out of the classroom." -Kirkus Reviews
