A Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year

* "Told in a lyrical, fairy tale-like style . . . Readers will be swept up." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "This well-written novel belongs in all collections." -- School Library Journal, starred review

"Ryan writes a moving story in clear, poetic language that children will sink into, and the book offers excellent opportunities for discussion and curriculum support." -- Booklist

"Ryan's... style is engaging, her characters appealing, and her story is one that-though a deep-rooted part of the history of California, the Depression, and thus the nation-is little heard in children's fiction. It bears telling to a wider audience." -- Kirkus Reviews
