Description
									Not everyone loves lawn ornaments. But Pearl was different. Pearl was their friend - the only human who knew they were real. So when Pearl’s family moves and (shockingly!) leaves their pink flamingo, deer, gnome, and lawn jockey behind, Flo, Betty, Norm, and Jack know what they must do. They must find Pearl no matter how long and perilous the journey. Through cities and suburbs, over mountains and through swamps, the ornaments make their dangerous way. They survive storms and menacing gargoyles. They get directions from weather vanes and other statuary. And always, always, they must avoid the dreaded trash truck!
							
Reviews

Three and 1/2 stars. "... this sweet and imaginative tale is highly recommended." - Video Librarian

“A simple adventure story with a happy reunion…Use this story when studying communities or moving, and for creative writing activities.” - School Library Journal (video review)

Starred review. “Yaccarino’s endearing, earnest characters are worth getting to know.” - Kirkus Reviews

"In sinuous contemporary art, Yaccarino humorously considers the secret lives of inanimate objects." - Publishers Weekly

"Yaccarino’s clean, bright illustrations have an appealing retro look, and the trek through suburbs, swamps, fields, and city is a visual treat... A keeper." - Booklist
