A true delight,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Tops & Bottoms (Caldecott Honor Book) (Hardcover)
Mr. Rabbit, sore from his loss in that race with Mr. Turtle, is a bit down on his luck. So, he strikes a bargain with Mr. Bear.
The rabbit family will plant and harvest crops on Mr. Bear's land and split the proceeds 50/50.
"Tops or bottoms," Mr. Rabbit asks.
Whether the crop is corn, potatoes, or lettuce - Mr. Bear just doesn't seem to "pick" the right half.
This is a great story - for everyone!!
Janet Stevens' illustrations tell a story all their own. Simply wonderful!
The book opens top to bottom (instead of left to right) to re-inforce the idea of "tops and bottoms".
I definitely reccomend this book - it's a true winner!!
