About the Author

ALEXEI TOLSTOY (1883-1945) was born and lived in Russia. He wrote several children's tales as well as poems, plays, and stories for adults.

SCOTT GOTO has illustrated many books for children, including Heat Wave and Shoeshine Whittaker. He lives in Hawaii.


Gr 1-2-A fun-filled retelling of this classic tale about the power of cooperation, told in creative language for beginning readers. An old man plants a turnip, encouraging it to grow and grow. When it becomes enormous, he gets everyone to help pull it out. The predictability, sequencing, and repetition allow children to build up their confidence as new readers. Goto's richly colored illustrations expressively enhance the text. A solid pick.-Karen Land, Greenport Public School, NY Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
