KIRKUS REVIEW

Whimsical and full of punning goodness, Nolan takes a little reference from Ben Jonson and runs with it. Buttermilk Hollow is a dying town, but a toothpick company is trying to buy folks out. Mayor Clabber thinks it’s a great idea (and he would make a lot of money) but Farmer Blue tells his favorite cow Pixie that he doesn’t know what to do. Soon, dairy products start to appear in the oddest places: Little Annie Colby finds a tub of banana frozen yogurt under her pillow when she loses a tooth. Jenny Tilsit longs for a new dress and gets one—made entirely of Swiss cheese. Visitors start to flood the town (they like getting cream cheese under their pillows), and soon Buttermilk Hollow is planning a dairy festival. The mayor plans to catch the dairy fairy, who isn’t whom you might think. Or perhaps her name udderly gave her away. Cheerful watercolors show the, er, whey to creamy giggles and guffaws. (Picture book. 4-7)
