Mr. Pine makes signs: "stop," "go," "pets for sale," "gas, 33 cents" (this book was first published in 1961), and more. Little Town is, in fact, plastered with the industrious painter's handiwork, ensuring social order in the way that signs do: "Yes, Little Town had all the signs a town could need." However, when the mayor deems it time to replace the aging, sunbaked, windblown signs, trouble begins. Mr. Pine is pleased to make new signs for the town: "The next week Mr. Pine painted and painted and painted." All would have been well if Mr. Pine had not lost his glasses and installed all the new signs in the wrong places. The sign on the mayor's door said, "This Way to the Zoo!" The sign over the bank said "Bread!"
Children will adore Leonard Kessler's short chapter books. The stories are simple and winning, and the books were designed with the early reader in mind--plenty of white space, lots of pictures, short, repetitive sentences, and only a few words per page. We're thrilled that Mr. Pine's Mixed-Up Signs is back in print along with its companion Mr. Pine's Purple House. A classic! (Ages 3 to 8) --Karin Snelson
