Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 2^-4. In this fictionalized picture book for older children, Henry David Thoreau hikes off into the wilderness with his walking stick and explains his philosophy of living in harmony with nature. The text, based on Thoreau's writings (which are excerpted but not sourced in an appended section), is concise and descriptive and in keeping with the ideas Thoreau expressed. As usual, Locker's luminescent landscapes are of museum quality; his attention to the details of Massachusetts's flora and fauna as well as his skillful use of lighting are particularly notable. This will be a nice complement to several other recent titles about Thoreau, especially D. B. Johnson's Henry Hikes to Fitchburg (2000) and Henry Builds a Cabin [BKL Mr 15 02] and Julie Dunlap's Louisa May and Mr. Thoreau's Flute [BKL S 1 02]. It may also be useful as an introduction to outdoor educational experiences. Only one small quibble: Thoreau's trek obviously takes several days since he spends nights in a tent, yet he is never shown carrying anything larger than a small daypack. Would that we could all travel so lightly! Kay Weisman"
