Reviews

"This winsome effort not only lovingly celebrates the color and magic of the fair, but endearingly depicts the inner landscape of a maturing child encountering his first taste of the adult world. A cheerful and totally entertaining look at fairs, friendship and the value of family."
"Dormer's occasional drawings add a sense of quirky humor to the story. Bulion's book is simply told, in realistic kid language"
"Bulion captures the boisterous, chaotic nature of the fair, as well as its primacy in the grade-school social calendar. Dormer's characteristically sketchy and childlike illustrations match the upbeat mood of this entertaining story."
