Synopsis: Spending the summer at Papa's logging camp, two brothers watch with awe as Puss Tompkins, the high climber, chops the branches off a tree

From School Library Journal: Kindergarten-Grade 3-Papa's family is spending the summer with him at his logging camp in this companion book to A Ride in the Crummy (Greenwillow, 1991). No sooner are they settled into their tiny cabin than the two boys begin keeping watch for Puss Tompkins, the high climber who chops off the tops of trees. After waiting for what feels like forever, they finally get to see Puss perform his dangerous task. This is a boyhood reminiscence, simply and quietly told. The narrative is laced with logging terminology that is enhanced by carefully executed and detailed watercolor paintings. The layout is attractive, with text on one page, topped by an illustrated strip, and a full-page illustration on the facing page. There is not much dramatic tension in this story; even the boys' anticipation is low key. What the book lacks in drama, however, it makes up for in coziness that is nostalgic but not cloying.
