9780670010837: One More Acorn

When beloved and award-winning picture-book author and illustrator Don Freeman died in 1978, his son, Roy, inherited his father's vast archive of art and stories. In that treasure trove, Roy recently discovered some artwork and a story set in Washington, D.C., about a squirrel gathering nuts for the winter. The project was promising but unfinished, so Roy decided to partner with his father, thirty years after his death, to bring the book to life. One More Acorn is more than an adorable, heartwarming story about a squirrel looking for that one last acorn. It is a son's homage to his father. And having an all-new original Don Freeman picture book is a true publishing event.

About the Author:

Don Freeman (1908 - 1978) was born in San Diego, California, and moved to New York City to study art, making his living as a jazz trumpeter. With the loss of his trumpet on a subway train, Mr. Freeman turned his talents to art fulltime. His many popular titles include the Caldecott Honor book Fly High, Fly Low. Roy Freeman is the only child of Don and Lydia Freeman. He was born in California and he has lived in Switzerland for many years.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 1–The celebrated creator of Corduroy (Viking, 1968) left behind scraps of this story, which his son has pieced together and completed. In Washington, DC, Earl the squirrel joins his park comrades in searching beneath orange leaves for stashes of hidden acorns to feed his wife and three kits. Unable to find the biggest acorn he hid during the summer, Earl braves traffic to cross Pennsylvania Avenue and cuts through to the Washington Monument, where scads of humans are gathered to watch a parade. A child's inconvenient meddling leads Earl to employ him as a stepping-stone to home. The 1960s style of Don Freeman's original inspiration stays true, but some scenes are significantly more detailed and complete, making for an unbalanced whole. Readers don't know the focus of the parade, and little actually happens. Earl's lack of emotional range makes investment in his success reserved at best.–Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VAα(c) Copyright 2010.
