Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreK-Gr 2—A group of lawn ornaments—a flamingo, a gnome, a jockey and a deer—fear abandonment by their human, Pearl, who has moved. Even worse than simply being left behind would be the "curb," the dreaded trash heap for things like them that no one wants anymore. And so the statues embark on a dangerous trek across town to find Pearl and reestablish their place in a new home. Witty dialogue is expressively read by Kirby Heyborne. He assumes a distinctive voice for each character, helping differentiate among them, which could have been a challenge in the absence of Yaccarino's bright, humorous, picture book illustrations. Happily, the lawn ornaments are reunited with their young owner in the satisfying conclusion to this short tale.—Maria Salvadore, formerly of the Washington, DC Public Library --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

From Booklist

In a plot that hearkens back to Toy Story, seemingly inanimate objects left behind during a move go out into the world and find their grateful owner. The four objects here are lawn ornaments: a flamingo, jockey, troll, and deer. Pearl, the little girl whose lawn they have been ornamenting, has a tea party with them at the start of the book but then somehow leaves without them. On their journey to Pearl’s new home, the ornaments focus on avoiding trash trucks and end up meeting lots of other statuary. Other lawn gnomes and flamingos are very friendly, but a gang of “creepy gargoyles” follows Pearl’s friends until a brave moose statue comes alive and chases the gargoyles away. Yaccarino’s clean, bright illustrations have an appealing retro look, and the trek through suburbs, swamps, fields, and city is a visual treat. The book’s ending is fairly predictable (a child–lawn ornament reunion), but the last twist (the ornaments get through the gated community’s gates via a trash truck) is a keeper. Grades K-3. --Abby Nolan

Pearl was all excited about moving to a new home, but her friends, the lawn ornaments, weren't quite as excited. Betty the deer, Jack the jockey, Norm the gnome and Flo the pink flamingo were pretty attached to their lawn and weren't so sure. Oh, well, wherever Pearl went they went. On moving day everything left over was packed in the car from the lava lamp, the bongo drums and, of course Pearl. Even Teddy made it, but something was obviously forgotten and Norm scratched his head and declared, "I may be wrong, but I think they forgot us." That sent Flo into a tizzy and it didn't help when Betty mentioned something about a curb.

Of course once something is set out by the curb that is THE end. They all decided the only thing they could do was to take to the road and find out where Ritzy Estates was on the map. They had to be very careful because some "people didn't love lawn ornaments the way Pearl did." And so every time they saw a trash truck they had to freeze up. Off they traveled, day and night, through rain and snow. They even stopped to ask Paul Bunyan and Babe the blue ox way up in Maine for directions. Were they ever going to find out where Pearl went before they ended up in a dastardly junkyard?

This zany, madcap adventure of Pearl's lost lawn ornaments will give pink flamingo owners a case of the giggles. Everyone who has ever had a lawn ornament or three or thirty will appreciate this little girl's appreciation of them. On the contrary everyone who can't stand lawn ornaments will have to resist rolling their eyes at the characters in this book, especially when Flo has to resist staying behind at a home that sports several pink flamingos. Dan Yaccarino's quirky sense of humor will not only delight the young set, but bring a smile to the older one!

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By J.Prather TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 5, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Lawn to Lawn is an okay little story about one girl who moves to a new home and mistakenly leaves her lawn ornaments behind. She's the only one who knows they are real, and her devoted lawn friends go on a trek to find her again. It's a familiar story that we have all read before and seen on the big screen in Toy Story. There's nothing new here, and the beginning is a bit confusing as we are never really introduced to anyone. There's very little set up, and by the time you get who's who all straightened out, everything's over and done.

There are many clever moments, and the illustrations are charming and will serve to endear these lost lawn ornaments to any reader. The story just comes up a bit short. It doesn't have that read aloud flow that would mark it as a story time read, and I don't see it having quite enough charm to be able to sustain it as a family favorite. Search out this author's earlier work and take a pass on this one.

We got this one as a birthday book to donate at school. I started a tradition of ordering the birthday book so we have it at home as well. Our family had just moved a few states over, so I found this one to be particularly appropriate since my son was the "new kid". We love this book, and read it periodically; it's a favorite remembrance of that time in our lives. I keep it in our guest room under the clock for visitors to read when they stay with us.

Our daughter went nuts over this book! It's a story about a girl who accidentally leaves behind the lawn fixtures when her family moves away. The lawn paraphernalia is alive, have names and are friends of the little girl. The book is about what they go through to find her again and how happy she is at the end to see her friends. Our daughter loved the book so much she wanted us to buy her some lawn friends too!
