Reviews

"It seems like the recipe for Ernestine's Milky Way is to fill a mason jar with the words of Kerry Madden-Lunsford and the pictures of Emily Sutton, add a spoonful of Barbara Cooney, William Steig, and Virginia Lee Burton, then shake it up into this fresh concoction of classic storytelling and energetic art. This book reads like butter." - Marla Frazee, two-time Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator


"This delicious period story with its warmly inviting illustrations has some surprises that get us right into the heart of the story. And what a good heart it is!" -Jane Yolen, author of Owl Moon, How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight, and A Bear Sat On My Porch Today.
