"With his exquisite sense of possibilities, Gerstein urges his readers to remember the tales of wonder that may not be written but are history, too."--The New York Times "Its richness in language and imagery and its snatches of humor will offer layers of inquiry and discussion." --Kirkus Reviews "Gerstein ... skillfully shapes a story ... Vividly descriptive."--Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) "THE OLD COUNTRY is an excellent read-aloud book for all ages."--Kidsreads.com
