No BioFrom School Library Journal:
Grade 4-6 When Zannah spots an old-fashioned dairy van standing on the street, she climbs inside to look for the driver. Before she knows it the van has taken her to the Hunky-Dory Dairy and its odd assortment of quaintly dressed people. The people, seven in all, have been transported by an evil magician from a past time and locked into a time limbo. Until Zannah's arrival, only the driver of the wagon, Mr. Pratt, has been able to enter the dairy or see them. When Zannah's mother, Patty, is also able to visit and share the life in the dairy, Zannah begins to plot a marriage between her mother and the group's patriarchal leader, Hector Graybeal, whose daughter is the special friend Zannah has always wanted. As the lives of the families begin to mingle, each begins to accept and appreciate what the other's world has to offer. However, Patty is reluctant to give up the nursery school she runs or the conveniences of modern life, and she has ideas of her own about marriage. The supposedly funny episodes in Patty's nursery school, such as sending children to the wrong homes, are of questionable humor. After a while, one wonders how the haphazard Patty keeps a license or if she even has one. Also, the logic behind the fantasy is tenuous (it's not really clear why only these people can visit the dairy), but the vivid characters make the interplay of contemporary urban life and an earlier rural existence believable. Six captioned full-page pencil illustrations give the book the semblance of a book from another era.Eleanor K. MacDonald, University Elementary School Library, Los Angeles
