"It's the idea of summer, really--the season that makes s think of 'those lazy, hazy, crazy days'... and thinking back we wonder, 'Can it be there was only one summer that I was 10?' Frannie's Fruits, a book about a family fruit stand, hums with that idea....Disarmingly fresh style, precise in its simplicity. . .ought to be acknowledged before one does double back-flips about the illustrations."  --The New York Times Book Review
