Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-In this dryly witty story, carrot-haired Primrose Pumpkin stumbles across a misplaced nose on a park bench. The helpful little girl, upon learning that it probably belongs to a Mr. Blewitt, begins a quest for the man with the missing sniffer. Primrose's "alarmingly" ("outstandingly," "sensationally," "eye-wateringly...") smelly dog, Dirk, mainly impedes her progress but then, in an unexpected and laughable way, brings the search to a successful conclusion. Deceptively simple acrylic paintings indicate that this is an author/artist who is expert at pleasing the eye as well as the ear. Children will enjoy looking at the bright, cartoonlike pictures while listening to multisyllabic adverbs in this slight but funny tale.-Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY

My 4 & 6 year old children who are beginning readers absolutely adore this book we borrowed from the library. While some words were more advanced than they were able to read on their own, we roared with laughter the first time we read it because we acted out scenes, read quotes with different voices, and paused to predict the story outcome. I'm visiting Amazon to buy the book.

I was attracted to this book because of the clever title and great illustrations. I read it to my 4-year-old and she lost interest by page 2. The author used words that I would say are more for the 7+ age group. It was just too hard to follow. I was really disappointed because it could have been so great but wasn't. I can't recommend this book.

I read this book to my six-year-old. True, some of the vocabulary was advanced, but he still got the gist of the story. It helped that I read out loud in a very exaggerated voice. I thought all the words were whimsical and fun and perfect for this very odd, but delightful, story.
