Full-Text Reviews
Horn Book Guide starred (March, 1996)
As the young narrator, who is leaving her prairie home, describes the familiar surroundings, her sense of loss is palpable. When she muses about staying behind -- perhaps living in the cottonwood tree or in the attic -- her parents say she needs to come with them, to tell the baby about the place they are leaving behind. MacLachlan's poetic text is accented by Moser's dark wood engravings.

Taken from the Hardcover (library binding).
