BLUEBERRIES FOR SAL by Robert McCloskey Kirkus Star


by Robert McCloskey ; illustrated by Robert McCloskey

Pub Date: Sept. 17th, 1948

Publisher: Viking

McCloskey has a beguiling way of telling a very simple story (witness his Make Way for Ducklings — and the slightly older Lentil and Homer Price). This comes in between in age appeal-with the story of Sal who went berrying with her mother and found it more fun to eat than pick until she got mixed up with a mother bear and her cub on the same errand. They eventually untangle-and it's the grown up bear and the grown up mother who are just aw bit scared and disconcerted.
