KIRKUS REVIEW

An Easy Reading book with content limited to elementary graders, this basic flaw is compounded by the author's inability to determine a purpose. Is this a travel through the state of Washington? If so, it is too sparse. Is it a detailed description of apple growing? If so, it is too scientific. Little Mike, a busy hero, learns the involved skills of pruning and grafting, of selecting seedlings, packing and selling the produce. In between, he trains a horse for a posse show, attends Indian festivals and visits a sheep camp. All this occurs within a few pages of a thin little book. Not recommended.
