Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A strange tree is growing through the January snow in Miss McGillicuddy's yard. Where did it come from? Why does it grow so fast? By May, its first leaves appear, and everyone is surprised to find that they aren't leaves at all. As Miss McGillicuddy goes about her routine — planting, gathering flowers, feeding her animals — she is startled by the frantic early harvest of the crouds who gather under the tree. When will it end? Will the tree exchange its crisp green for autumn brown when the season changes?

Review:

"Charming and detailed illustrations portray a strong, independent woman whose life is graceful and meaningful." The Horn Book

Review:

"A picture book for all seasons." Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Review:

"Though its message may be beyond the reach of some readers, Stewart's first book will raise worthwhile questions for both children and adults. Yet more exceptional than the story are Small's paintings." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"This quirky little story has charm, but it is perhaps too quiet and the woman too passive an observer for most children....Nevertheless...this book, in a quiet way, makes a definite statement about the foibles of humankind." School Library Journal

Review:

"Handsome and thought-provoking." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Miss McGillicuddy's simple country routine continues through-out the year in spite of a very unusual tree growing in her yard.
