Review by Booklist Reviews

Ages 4^-7. Stevenson's fifth visit to the animals of Mud Flat is as full of laughs and insight as his previous ones. In nine short stories made up solely of dialogue, he introduces the characters of his lively community as they face the arrival of spring. As usual, the animals are full of vim and vigor and are graced with recognizably human foibles and personalities--among them, grouchy Mr. Crocker, who refuses to believe spring has arrived; lazy pig Albert, who celebrates spring with a contented snooze; and Gracie the fish, who thinks spring must be "a turtle thing." And there are plenty of expressive, comical free-flowing watercolors to match. A winsome, warm, and witty offering, great for reading aloud to little ones or for older children to read on their own.
