"Denise Ortakales makes magic with cut paper! She can "draw" better with her scissors than most illustrators can with a pen or brush. These pictures are full of charm, fun and good solid information about life on a farm. The best part for kids will be looking for the cleverly hidden carrot thief hiding in each picture--and following the adventures
of the mouse family."
