James Stevenson is a prolific author of picture books, poetry, and young adult novels. His work is read and loved by readers of all ages.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 3?Stevenson's familiar animals from Mud Flat Olympics (Greenwillow, 1994) and other titles participate in a yard sale with predictably enjoyable results. In 10 brief chapters, the many characters sell one another all sorts of items. Crocker, con man extraordinaire, convinces Henry Raccoon to buy a clock without hands or numbers; Beth sells a footstool she dislikes to Matthew, but buys it back for double the price when she sees how pleased he is with it; and Simsbury spends so much time in his attic looking for something he can bear to part with that he misses the whole sale. No matter, he is in time for the party where all the animals happily use their purchases. Each chapter is illustrated with several small watercolor cartoons done in Stevenson's typical style. His characters are filled with personality and expression, often conveyed simply through the eyes, as in the slightly shocked and dismayed look Nick and Myrna exchange when they realize that they will have to share an accordion since they have each simultaneously purchased a separate end. These quietly funny and perceptive vignettes should delight fans of the other "Mud Flat" stories and win new readers to the series. Contrast this title with Artie Ann Bates's fine Ragsale (Houghton, 1995). You won't need a hard sell for Yard Sale.?Louise L. Sherman, Anna C. Scott School, Leonia, NJ
