Read full description of the books:



I would just like to say again how weird children’s books from the 1940s -1960s are, as far as content goes. I sometimes wonder where in the heck they came up with the subject matter. This is not to say books from these years are bad, but very different. This book won a 1954 Caldecott Honor award. The author, Ruth Sawyer, was mother-in-law to the illustrator, Robert McCloskey and apparently his wife was a children’s librarian. Though I have not always been a fan of Robert McCloskey (with the exception of "Make Way for Ducklings"), I absolutely adore his brown and blue illustrations done for this picture book. They made me crack up! Especially the one in the beginning with Old Man Grumble laying back in his chair. This story was basically a mountain folktale version of "The Gingerbread Man".

Johnny is a bound-out boy (basically an indentured apprentice) who works for Merry and her husband Grumble, on their farm. Everyone has their own work to do. One day, the animals either run away or are stolen, and so Merry and Grumble must let go of Johnny to find his own way in the world, as they can no longer afford to feed him. So he is sent off with a Journey Cake (a giant round cornbread) and some tools. Everything is fine until the Journey Cake pops out of his bag and rolls off town the hill, and gets some pigs, cows, sheep and chicken to follow it. They end up back at Merry and Grumble’s farm, which is now saved thanks to all these free animals showing up. Johnny is welcomed back to the farm. Recommended for ages 4-7, 4 stars.
