about

A creative companion to Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon

Molly Lou Melon's grandma taught her to be happy with herself no matter what, but  that's not all she learned. Molly Lou heard all about how her grandma didn't have fancy store-bought toys when she was little. She made dolls out of twigs and flowers and created her own fun in her backyard.

So Molly Lou does just that, proving that the best thing to play with is a huge imagination!
Patty Lovell taught kindergarten for fourteen years and recently moved to first grade. She lives in Glen Cove, New York. David Catrow is an editorial cartoonist as well as a children's book illustrator. He lives in Springfield, Ohio.

Editorial Reviews

"Molly Lou experiments with making a floral 'whoseywhatsit,' and then turns a backyard tree into a dollhouse, boxes into a race car, and clouds into quality TV programming. When Gertie, overindulged and bored, moves in next door, Molly Lou shows her how to embrace found objects, and soon the two girls are happily exhausted. The pro-imaginative-play and anti-consumerism message . . . will be appreciated by many." --Booklist"Catrow’s cartoon-style pencil, watercolor, and collage illustrations match Molly Lou’s lavish imagination. . . . Words and pictures work well to present a straightforward lesson on the value of good old-fashioned play." --School Library Journal
