Book Description

14 May 2013

   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.

5.0 out of 5 stars This zany, madcap adventure of Pearl's lost lawn ornaments will give pink flamingo owners a case of the giggles! 3 Feb 2010
By D. Fowler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Pearl was all excited about moving to a new home, but her friends, the lawn ornaments, weren't quite as excited. Betty the deer, Jack the jockey, Norm the gnome and Flo the pink flamingo were pretty attached to their lawn and weren't so sure. Oh, well, wherever Pearl went they went. On moving day everything left over was packed in the car from the lava lamp, the bongo drums and, of course Pearl. Even Teddy made it, but something was obviously forgotten and Norm scratched his head and declared, "I may be wrong, but I think they forgot us." That sent Flo into a tizzy and it didn't help when Betty mentioned something about a curb.

Of course once something is set out by the curb that is THE end. They all decided the only thing they could do was to take to the road and find out where Ritzy Estates was on the map. They had to be very careful because some "people didn't love lawn ornaments the way Pearl did." And so every time they saw a trash truck they had to freeze up. Off they traveled, day and night, through rain and snow. They even stopped to ask Paul Bunyan and Babe the blue ox way up in Maine for directions. Were they ever going to find out where Pearl went before they ended up in a dastardly junkyard?

This zany, madcap adventure of Pearl's lost lawn ornaments will give pink flamingo owners a case of the giggles. Everyone who has ever had a lawn ornament or three or thirty will appreciate this little girl's appreciation of them. On the contrary everyone who can't stand lawn ornaments will have to resist rolling their eyes at the characters in this book, especially when Flo has to resist staying behind at a home that sports several pink flamingos. Dan Yaccarino's quirky sense of humor will not only delight the young set, but bring a smile to the older one!

3.0 out of 5 stars Just ok 5 Jun 2011
By J. Prather - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Lawn to Lawn is an okay little story about one girl who moves to a new home and mistakenly leaves her lawn ornaments behind. She's the only one who knows they are real, and her devoted lawn friends go on a trek to find her again. It's a familiar story that we have all read before and seen on the big screen in Toy Story. There's nothing new here, and the beginning is a bit confusing as we are never really introduced to anyone. There's very little set up, and by the time you get who's who all straightened out, everything's over and done.

There are many clever moments, and the illustrations are charming and will serve to endear these lost lawn ornaments to any reader. The story just comes up a bit short. It doesn't have that read aloud flow that would mark it as a story time read, and I don't see it having quite enough charm to be able to sustain it as a family favorite. Search out this author's earlier work and take a pass on this one.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! 5 April 2014

Our daughter went nuts over this book! It's a story about a girl who accidentally leaves behind the lawn fixtures when her family moves away. The lawn paraphernalia is alive, have names and are friends of the little girl. The book is about what they go through to find her again and how happy she is at the end to see her friends. Our daughter loved the book so much she wanted us to buy her some lawn friends too!
5.0 out of 5 stars A sweet book about sticking together and finding where you belong. 4 Feb 2014

We got this one as a birthday book to donate at school. I started a tradition of ordering the birthday book so we have it at home as well. Our family had just moved a few states over, so I found this one to be particularly appropriate since my son was the "new kid". We love this book, and read it periodically; it's a favorite remembrance of that time in our lives. I keep it in our guest room under the clock for visitors to read when they stay with us.

4.0 out of 5 stars The movie/Then the sequel 3 Mar 2010
By B. Humphrey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this after reading the review on AOL. It's a cute little tale. I can visualize it as a 'Toy Story' type movie, but I expected more as a book. Actually, can one really -see- all these lawn ornaments being placed in the yard and feeling at home? After all, the new address is in a high end, ritzy neighborhood. What about the zoning laws? Perhaps I'm over thinking it ...ha!
