Synopsis

Caldecott Honor author Anne Isaacs and N.Y. TIMES bestselling artist Mark Teague transform Helen Bannerman's popular classic story into an Amercian tall tale set in the backwoods of New England.


When her family's wagon hits a bump, golden-haired Toby Littlewood is hurled into the sky and lands deep in the snowy forest. There she meets a prickly porcupine, an enormous bear, and a hungry cougar, among other fearsome creatures. Cleverly, she talks each one out of eating her by offering up her fancy clothes. In the end, in a competition to be the grandest beast, the vain animals chase each other around and around a maple tree, where they turn into maple syrup!

Isaacs' clever, rollicking text and Teague's animated animals in Toby's clothing are sure to delight the youngest reader.

By this time, Toby is down to her red long johns, and watches from an evergreen as the five would-be predators turn on each other, racing so fast around the trunk of a maple that they turn into a golden brown puddle.
