About this title


Grandfather, grandmother, granddaughter, the dog, the cat, and a mouse all fail to uproot grandfather's enormous turnip at harvest time, until a little beetle joins the hard-pulling crew

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 An adequate retelling of the well-known Russian cumulative tale (although no credit is given to the author, Alexei Tolstoy). Aside from the names, the ruddy cheeks and the rather rotund stature of the various characters who lend a hand pulling up Grandfather Ivan's turnip, there is little in the text or the bright watercolor paintings to suggest their Russian setting. Also somewhat disturbing is a cutesy family of rabbits who appear throughout yet have nothing whatever to do with the tale. For it's Petya, the beetle, whose added effort succeeds in pulling up the stubborn turnip at last. He is, of course, pleased and quite satisfied with himself in the end. A good choice for story hours, longer and more appealing than The Great Big Enormous Turnip (Watts, 1969; o.p.) by Oxenbury. Luann Toth, Summit Free Public Library, N.J.
