KIRKUS REVIEW

A picture book for young naturalists is by the artist whose collaboration with her husband on such books as Dipper of Copper Creek and Meph, the Pet Skunk have made her skill with a pencil and brush widely known. Here her drawings form a biography of a hole in an apple tree from the time when it was no bigger than a bark beetle's bore to a season when other animals- woodpeckers, carpenter bees, etc.- have made it big enough for a coon to get into. Two children watch the growth of the hole, making a tiny plot for the story. Very firm stitching.
