Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In a starred review, PW called this tale of an overweight foster child, befriended by the equally rotund school custodian (who heads out of town every Christmas Eve), "a warm blend of fantasy and reality that delivers a satisfying surprise ending." Ages 4-8.

Born Patricia Ann Barber in Lansing, Michigan, to parents of Russian and Ukrainian descent on one side and Irish on the other, Patricia Polacco grew up in both California and Michigan. Her school year was spent in Oakland, California, and summers in her beloved Michigan. She describes her family members as marvelous storytellers. "My fondest memories are of sitting around a stove or open fire, eating apples and popping corn while listening to the old ones tell glorious stories about their homeland and the past. We are tenacious traditionalists and sentimentalists.... With each retelling our stories gain a little more Umph!"Studying in the United States and Australia, Patricia Polacco has earned an M.F.A. and a Ph.
