Praise for Farmer Palmer's Wagon Ride
“* In his offhand, poker-faced manner, Steig narrates the comically hapless journey of Farmer Palmer and hired hand Ebenezer as they return from town, their wagon loaded with gifts for the Palmer family. Full-color illustrations add action, expression, and bright, countryside colors.” —Booklist, starred review
“A joyous slapstick farce with a breezy text that rushes headlong to the end of the tale and with pictures in which two country bumpkins go from one hilarious misadventure to another.” —The Horn Book
“A gross of gold stars.” —The New Yorker
