KIRKUS REVIEW

 When Max, who looks about two, sees a tractor drive by his window, he is mesmerized. Soon Sara, a young teenager, sees Max sitting by the window and invites him for a walk in the fields. First they see chickens and cows, then they see boys fishing, and finally they see the great red tractor. Very little of this story is spelled out; it is left to readers to quietly determine the ages of the two friends from the way they kneel, walk, or use language: `` `Go out,' said Max, racing to find his shoes and coat and hat.'' Lewis's colored pencil illustrations of rustic summer scenes have been drawn with infinite care; Max and Sara look almost uncannily realistic in their pastoral wanderings. A book with a drop of humor and a spoonful of wistfulness. (Picture book. 2-4)
