Editorial Reviews

*"MacLachlan journeys through her past-a girl who read constantly, climbed trees, and tried "to teach her dog to talk by moving his lips like hers"-to see what made her the person she became, who "writes about talking dogs/ and chickens who scratch stories in the dirt." Sheban's scenes are bathed in golden light, and his faded palette and soft textures evoke a spare upbringing: simple clothing, old cars, a worn-out suitcase."-Publsihers Weekly, starred review*"Lovely scenes are balanced with amusing ones, giving this expressive picture book its irresistible, down-to-earth charm."-Booklist, starred review"When does someone truly learn the gift of writing and storytelling? Newbery Medalist MacLachlan takes her trademark elegant writing to the picture-book level with this semiautobiographical charmer."-Kirkus Reviews
