Synopsis: A child uses a basket of sticks, some daisy pudding, and sun-dried socks to grow a picket fence.
From Publishers Weekly:
The opening page of this whimsical volume tips off readers that it is no ordinary how-to manual: "Follow a sidewalk until you find an empty lot. It's been on the corner for years, beneath the noticing of its neighbors, who are three-story houses." Following the text's directions, a boy and his yellow-and-green spotted dog gather white sticks and plant them at the edge of the lot. The child then mixes fertilizer in a giant watering can: "You nourish the sticks with something vanilla, like daisy pudding with milk." The sticks are then covered "white socks as old as a grandmother's bag of scraps, and laundered, and dried on the grass." The sticks grow until they reach "a sudden height" and become full-fledged pickets, "all of them friends, and holding hands." The boy harvests the crop, which wins him a first-prize ribbon at the fair for Best Fence. With its droll perspectives and vivid hues, Westcott's (illustrator of Dinner at the Panda Palace ) art is as fanciful as first-time author Cuneo's lilting lines. This adventuresome collaboration will plant new thoughts in fertile young imaginations. Ages 5-8.
