From the doughnut man to the neighborhood cats and dogs, everyone bounces into the general store to say good morning to the storekeeper. Her day is packed with rummaging customers, rambunctious children and friendly folks who come in for a chat. Part grocery store, part hardware store, gift shop, gas station, bakery, and post office; her store has everything you need-from plumbing supplies to baby clothes, beach balls to bananas. And when evening comes and all is quiet, the storekeeper goes upstairs for the night-until the sun brings a new day and fresh delights.
“Fresh, buoyant, and inviting..The simple and straightforward text contrasts perfectly with the droll illustrations to provide just the right humorous touch. Children will definitely want to visit this store again and again.”
“Pearson sketches this delightful blend of humor and authentic Americana with her usual insouciant, deft hand.”
“This has all the appeal of Pearson’s other exuberant works, the story’s pace is welcoming and leisurely.”
“Will delight children as they pore over the pictures and list to the story or read it themselves.”
