"Lawn to Lawn" is the subversively funny story of four lawn ornaments who, left behind after a move, travel across the country to find the little girl they love.
As they make their way through cities and towns, over mountains and into swamps, a lawn jockey, a deer, a pink flamingo, and a garden gnome face menacing gargoyles and dangerous trash trucks and tackle the big questions--where they belong, and what home means.
Dan Yaccarino's quirky tale of toys-come-to-life joyously reminds us that home is where the people you love are, and that no journey is too difficult to be with them.

“Yaccarino’s endearing, earnest characters are worth getting to know.”

Review, Publishers Weekly, December 21, 2009:
"In sinuous contemporary art, Yaccarino humorously considers the secret lives of inanimate objects."
