Description

What will it take for a cynical older sister to realize she's a born accordion player — with music in her heart? Eugenia Lincoln is a practical person with no time for gee-gaws, whoop-de-whoops, or frivolity. When an unexpected package containing an accordion arrives at her house, she is determined to have nothing to do with it. But her plans to sell the accordion, destroy the accordion, and give the accordion away all end in frustration. How can Eugenia stop being tormented by this troublesome package? Might she discover that a bit of unforeseen frivolity could be surprisingly . . . joyous?

      • bioText:

        The theme of hope and belief amid impossible circumstances is a common thread in much of Kate DiCamillo's writing. In her instant #1 New York Times bestseller The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, a haughty china rabbit undergoes a profound transformation after finding himself facedown on the ocean floor—lost, and waiting to be found. The Tale of Despereaux—the Newbery Medal–winning novel that later inspired an animated adventure from Universal Pictures—stars a tiny mouse with exceptionally large ears who is driven by love to become an unlikely hero. And The Magician's Elephant, an acclaimed and exquisitely paced fable, dares to ask the question, What if?

        Kate DiCamillo's own journey is something of a dream come true. After moving to Minnesota from Florida in her twenties, homesickness and a bitter winter helped inspire Because of Winn-Dixie—her first published novel, which, remarkably, became a runaway bestseller and snapped up a Newbery Honor. "After the Newbery committee called me, I spent the whole day walking into walls," she says. "I was stunned. And very, very happy."

        Her second novel, The Tiger Rising, went on to become a National Book Award Finalist. Since then, the master storyteller has written for a wide range of ages. She is the author of six books in the Mercy Watson series of early chapter books, which stars a "porcine wonder" with an obsession for buttered toast. The second book in the series, Mercy Watson Goes for a Ride, was named a Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book by the American Library Association in 2007. She is also the co-author of the Bink and Gollie series, which celebrates the tall and short of a marvelous friendship. The first book, Bink & Gollie, was awarded the Theodor Seuss Giesel Award in 2011.
        She also wrote a luminous holiday picture book, Great Joy.

        Her novel Flora & Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures won the 2014 Newbery Medal. It was released in fall 2013 to great acclaim, including five starred reviews, and was an instant New York Times bestseller. Flora & Ulysses is a laugh-out-loud story filled with eccentric, endearing characters and featuring an exciting new format—a novel interspersed with comic-style graphic sequences and full-page illustrations, all rendered in black and white by up-and-coming artist K. G. Campbell. It was a 2013 Parents' Choice Gold Award Winner and was chosen by Amazon, Publishers Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, and Common Sense Media as a Best Book of the Year.

        Kate DiCamillo, who was named National Ambassador for Young People's Literature for 2014–2015, says about stories, "When we read together, we connect. Together, we see the world. Together, we see one another." Born in Philadelphia, the author lives in Minneapolis, where she faithfully writes two pages a day, five days a week.

        Gr 1-3-Someone has sent Eugenia Lincoln an unexpected package. Readers who recognize the uptight, domineering, elderly elder sister from the series will know that Eugenia does not like surprises. When the surprise turns out to be something as frivolous as an accordion, it simply must go. What follows is a humorous adventure as Eugenia struggles to return, sell, destroy, and finally accept the despised musical instrument. Many residents of Deckawoo Drive make appearances and give opinions on what poor Eugenia should do. Finally, only one real question remains: Who dared send the accordion in the first place? Van Dusen's illustrations enliven the already amusing text. VERDICT A great addition to chapter book shelves and a must-have for fans of the series.-Kelly Roth, Bartow County Public Library, Cartersville, GA

        Mercy Watson's neighbors, the Lincoln Sisters of 52 Deckawoo Drive, return in their second adventure, and now it's elder sister Eugenia's turn in the spotlight.Eugenia Lincoln is a sensible, no-nonsense, practical person. She does not have time for "poetry, geegaws, whoop-de-whoops, or frivolity," and she definitely does not have time for oversize, unexpected packages. However, someone has sent Eugenia just that. It's an accordion, and it has to go--she can't think of anything more "frivolous, more geegaw-esque, more whoop-de-whoop-ish than an accordion." The Blizzintrap Schmocker Company won't take it back, so she makes a list of the choices before her: sell it, destroy it, or give it away. Can Eugenia be convinced to keep it--and that maybe there is music in her heart? Artwork shows what the text doesn't: elderly Eugenia's younger sister, "Baby," is also an old white woman, and neighborhood kids Frank and Stella are black. The text is peppered with tough vocabulary for the more advanced independent readers in the intended age group, but the story also works well as a bedtime read-aloud for those not ready to tackle words and phrases such as "malevolent," "obtuse," or "diametrically opposed" on their own. Eugenia's need for routine and her intolerance of change and uncertainty will resonate with readers who experience life similarly. (Fiction. 6-9)

        Grades 1-4 The fourth installment in the Tales from Deckawoo Drive series focuses on Baby Lincoln's cantankerous older sister, Eugenia. When the no-nonsense spinster receives a mystery package, she is unsettled by the intrusion, annoyed that the box contains an accordion, and adamant that she will not learn to play it. But a visit from Gaston, a mysterious stranger who claims he can bring joy to Eugenia through music, begins to thaw her heart, and a later encounter with neighbor child Stella brings out Eugenia's inner musician. Van Dusen's artwork (not seen in final form) appears on most spreads, helping to break up the text for younger readers and giving form to DiCamillo's quirky characters. As in the earlier books, believable (if eccentric) personalities, sophisticated vocabulary, and polished prose make this an inviting title for emerging chapter-book readers. Fans of this series and the earlier Mercy Watson books will be amazed by Eugenia's partial redemption and delight that the results are merely temporary.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2017, American Library Association.)
