Inhaltsangabe: Seeking companionship, a lonely old lady miniaturizes the postman, milkman, and plumber and places them in jars around the house.
From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2 The old adage ``With friends like that, who needs enemies?'' takes on particular significance in this charming picture book. Mrs. Culpepper shrinks her three most special friends and keeps them in glass jars. But her little habit is not at all menancing, judg ing from the expressions of delight on her ``victims'' faces as she royally en tertains them. In fact, the curious plot twist which replaces the three friends with the policeman who comes to their rescue is amusing and feels like a part of a whimsical game that the entire vil lage is in on. The book achieves a fine balance because of the constant pull be tween the narrative and the illustra tions: the narrative is simple and hand- lettered, while the illustrations are busy and complex; the narrative tells a single story, while the illustrations develop many story lines; the narrative is quiet and matter-of-fact, while the illustra tions are noisy and animated. This see- saw effect creates tension and develops a satisfying story which will engage the imagination of many readers for a good long ``spell.''
