Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mama and Papa agree that eggs for breakfast would be nice, but theyand#8217;re too busy to go to the store. So they decide that Hetty is old enough to go by herself. Although she practices walking smoothly up the hill so she wonand#8217;t break the precious eggs, she canand#8217;t help running all the way down. Young readers will hold their breath as Hetty tries her very best to get those eggs home safely. and#8220;The story is remarkable for its evocative imagery, and the loving interchange between the characters sets a charming tone. The words are perfectly complemented by Lewisand#8217;s dazzling, impressionistic watercolors that show the joyous power of love and depict a warmly supportive world in which Hetty ventures forth toward independence. A fine book that speaks straight to the heart.and#8221;--Booklist
