Childhood Favorite Sep 20, 2005
Yonnie Wondernose is a charming book that, along with Marguerite De Angeli's other classics, deserves to be in every elementary school and public library. Award-winning De Angeli is both illustrator and author and her artwork introduced me to the world of the Amish, Mennonites and Quakers.
"Yonnie" lets us peek into the world of a working farm where every family member, even seven year old Yonnie, has responsibilities. But his "wondernose" often leads him to satisfy his curiosity before chores. One special night Yonnie faces new duties. Will his wondernose get the better of him, or will he earn new respect from Papa?
