Praise
"...a picture book for all seasons...I can think of no more sumptuous effort in the history of American picture books...a lush, oversized volume, with generous, cream-colored pages and the heady fragrance of old printer's ink. It looks and smells like a classic."
"An opulent book that sports sumptuous watercolors, a lively tempo, and clever energy....Haas touches the story with rhyme here and there, infuses it with hope and old-fashioned enchantment, and loads the artwork with details that continue to reveal themselves upon additional readings."
"This is an old-fashioned, lavish and child-friendly storybook. The format is large, the paper is creamy, and Ms. Haas's gorgeous and fully developed watercolor paintings are delicate and filled with curious details that a child can ponder during the day as well as at bedtime."
From the Publisher
Annotation A young girl named Lucy is summoned from her bed by a frog who invites her to a secret summertime party. Transformed to miniature size, young Lucy attends the party in the company of a baby bird, a mouse, an inch worm, and a small Japanese doll lost long ago by Lucy's own grandmother. Watercolor and pastel illustrations accompany the text.
Editors Note One warm summer night, a frog jumps into Lucy's room with a magic party hat and an invitation for her to a birthday party. Lucy puts on the hat and--when a moonbeam touches the hat out in the garden--becomes as small as a leaf! Full color.
Editors Note 2 Receiving an invitation to a birthday party, Lucy puts on a magic party hat, shrinks down to the size of a leaf, and sets out to join a host of woodland creatures at a special nighttime celebration. By the author of The Maggie B.
