Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

PAT ZIETLOW MILLER received an Ezra Jack Keats New Writer Honor for Sophie's Squash, her picture book debut, which was published to four starred reviews and named a Charlotte Zolotow Honor Book. The book is based on a true story—Pat's own daughter, Sonia, once loved a squash. She lives in Madison, Wisconsin. Visit the author at patzietlowmiller.com.

ANNE WILSDORF is the illustrator of numerous books for children, including Dogs on the Bed by Elizabeth Bluemle, The Best Story by Eileen Spinelli, Alligator Sue by Sharon Arms Doucet, and the Ruby Lu series by Lenore Look. She lives and works in Lausanne, Switzerland.

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

"Miller's debut is a winner," declares Kirkus Reviews in a starred review.

On a trip to the farmers' market with her parents, Sophie chooses a squash, but instead of letting her mom cook it, she names it Bernice. From then on, Sophie brings Bernice everywhere, despite her parents' gentle warnings that Bernice will begin to rot. As winter nears, Sophie does start to notice changes.... What's a girl to do when the squash she loves is in trouble? With absolutely delightful text by Pat Zietlow Miller and downright hilarious illustrations from Anne Wilsdorf, Sophie's Squash will be a fresh addition to any collection of autumn books.

From the Hardcover edition.
