Editorial Reviews


“When Pa brings home a young turkey to fatten up for Christmas dinner, chaos follows in Cole's picture book tale about a penny-pinching family squeezed into a 19th century New York City tenement.” ―Sacramento Bee

“...all ends well in this humorous, wholesome story about tightened straits, with its not-too-vinegary perspective on how the other half celebrates.” ―

“This could easily be incorporated into a class history lesson or simply enjoyed as a unique and humorous holiday story.” ―BCCB

“Nothing is sumptuous for the 19th-century tenement-dwelling family at the heart of Brock Cole's endearing picture book 'The Money We'll Save' (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 40 pages, $16.99)...With Mr. Cole's watercolor-filled wobbly line drawings, we see the family--and soon their neighbors--struggling to accommodate the growing bird. Not a penny is saved, of course, but in the end the bird offers enrichment of a charmingly different sort.” ―Wall Street Journal

“Cole's buoyant watercolors capture the busy chaos and warm homeyness of family life plus turkey in this folksy journey into a different time.” ―Booklist

“Cole's blithe illustrations, comfortably crowded with his amusing, expressive characters, set this entertaining holiday story in nineteenth-century New York City.” ―Horn Book Magazine, starred review

“…a holiday story as humorous as it is touching.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Cole's humorous illustrations bring to life the crowded conditions in a 19th-century New York tenement building; the characters are raggedy and poor, but full of spirit and good will.” ―School Library Journal

“When Pa brings home a turkey poult to raise for Christmas dinner, hilarious complications ensue in this heartwarming family story set in 19th-century New York City.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review
