Description

Not everyone loves lawn ornaments. But Pearl was different. Pearl was their friend - the only human who knew they were real. So when Pearl’s family moves and (shockingly!) leaves their pink flamingo, deer, gnome, and lawn jockey behind, Flo, Betty, Norm, and Jack know what they must do. They must find Pearl no matter how long and perilous the journey. Through cities and suburbs, over mountains and through swamps, the ornaments make their dangerous way. They survive storms and menacing gargoyles. They get directions from weather vanes and other statuary. And always, always, they must avoid the dreaded trash truck!

    Oh I had such high hopes for this book. We really liked Mr Yaccarino's book on Jacques Cousteau. When I saw his name on the cover along with the vintage style illustrations and a story of lawn ornaments searching for their owner I thought it would be a huge win. I was sadly disappointed. The story was disjointed and lack luster.

    I really wanted to love this book. Normally I can find something funny or enjoyable in most any picture book... but alas, I came up empty with Lawn to Lawn. The idea sounded very amusing, yet it simply didn't work. I couldn't understand why Pearl would leave the much loved yard ornaments behind without saying anything to her parents, and the story just didn't flow naturally?!? But who knows, I'm sure some kids in the library will check it out and enjoy it!

    I don't think this book is very good. Yes, it is based on the concept of the incredible journey, but yard art? A bit unrealistic. Not that all picture books have to be realistic, however yard art cannot travel, so it would have been more believable would have gone looking for them. Also, she moves from a simple house to one that requires private gates and gardeners. Not my cup of tea.
