About this title


Members of an outlaw family gain acceptance from the public because of the fine clothes their father makes for them

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3-- The jacket copy chronicles Australian author Hilton's wish to "give the gentler men their place in history" by introducing a trio of desperadoes (Dave, sister Sue, and mother Maude). Father Dan prefers to stay home and sew. Tough, rough, and fierce though they may be, Dave, Sue, and Maude delight their victims with their well-tailored duds (compliments of Dan, of course) and end up more benignly employed. Hilton's tale is tersely and rhythmically told, with a restrained sense of humor that sets just the right tone for the riotous cartoons of watercolor washes over ink. In a scribbled, energetic style reminiscent of cartoonist Rowland Emmett's, Harvey litters his landscapes with cattle, kangaroos, and an occasional surprise certain to set readers poring over the pages in search of more buried gems. This rollicking tale is thoroughly entertaining, with a clear message to "follow your bliss." --Marcia Hupp, Mamaroneck Public Library, NY
