Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Starred Review, Publishers Weekly , July 9, 2012 "Duke's story brims with humor of both the classroom and animal-buddy varieties, and her featherlight paintings capture every ounce of Herky's enthusiasm, impatience, and eventual satisfaction." School LIbrary Journal , June 2012 "Herky is expressively drawn and adorable. This title will join the list of pumpkin classics so popular every fall." Kirkus Reviews, July 1, 2012 "As Herky says, ".you can't stay sad for long when you have had a garden"--nor when you have read about Herky and his first gardening experience." From the Hardcover edition. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: Hercules, a classroom guinea pig, has a revelation when he watches the first graders grow plants from seeds. He wants to grow things, too! And during summer vacation (spent with the teacher's dad), he gets his chance. With the help of a friendly rabbit, Herky prepares the soil, carefully plants pumpkin seeds, and waits. And waits, and waits. One of the most important things he learns about gardening is patience. It's very hard to go back to school when fall comes--especially because his pumpkins aren't quite ready yet. But in October, the teacher's dad arrives with a big pumpkin for her class--that just mysteriously grew in his yard! And Herky begins dreaming about next year's garden . . .
Kate Duke has created a funny and charming book that shows not just how seeds grow into plants, but also how you need patience to see a long project through.
About the Author: KATE DUKE has been creating wonderful picture books for more than 25 years. Her best loved tales often include guinea pigs or mice, like Aunt Isabel Tells a Good One, and Guinea Pig ABC. Ms. Duke lives in New Haven, Connecticut.
