Riassunto: A picture-book version of the classic Rootabaga story.
Carl Sandburg's Rootabaga Stories have amused generations of children with their distinctly American fairy-tale flavor. In The Huckabuck family, which was from his first collection, Jonas Jonas, Mama Mama, and Pony Pony Huckabuck must pull up stakes when a fire starts and their enormous popcorn harvest pops them out of house and farm. After traveling to towns all over the country, where Jonas Jonas tries out very different occupations, the family finally receives a portent that it's time to go home. This time they won't be farming popcorn, however. David Small's golden rendition of this strange and funny tale, with its delicious textual repetition, will be a happy introduction to Sandburg for many children.
Pulitzer Prize-winner Carl Sandburg (1878-1967) was one of the foremost writers of the twentieth century.
David Small is the author and/or illustrator of many books, including the Caldecott Honor Book The Gardener (written by Sarah Stewart). He lives in Michigan.
