Synopsis: Mountain man Washburn insists on looking on the bright side of things, even as disaster after disaster befalls him

From School Library Journal: PreSchool-Grade 1-- Old Washburn, sanguine to the extreme, always looks on the bright side. When his cow runs away, he cheerfully turns the milk pail into a drum. When the pig escapes, he good-naturedly turns the fencepost into drumsticks. When a storm blows his cabin down, he uses the wood to whittle a fiddle. His neighbors are drawn by his music and while some of them dance, others help him to rebuild. Finally, his cow, his pig, and the other farm animals hear Old Washburn's music and head for home. Martin has written a pleasantly optimistic story without the burden of didacticism. Nicely told in lilting language, it is a treat to read aloud. Watercolors in a pleasing palette humorously depict Washburn's farm as a laissez-faire kind of place. The old man himself has his long gray hair caught back in a rainbow-colored ribbon. His cow, Blanche Wisconsin, is comically shown with a rainbow floating in one ear and out the other as she listens to the music. A variety of interesting perspectives and droll closeups make this an excellent choice for group sharing--along with a few choruses of ``Old MacDonald Had a Farm.'' --Kate McClelland, Perrot Memorial Library, Greenwich, CT-
