An opulent book that sports sumptuous watercolors, a lively tempo, and clever energy. Haas touches the story with rhyme here and there, infuses it with hope and old-fashioned enchantment, and loads the artwork with details that continue to reveal themselves upon additional readings. A frog jumps through Lucy's window on a summer's night, with an invitation to a party and a magic paper hat. Lucy shuffles outside, and & finger of moonlight touched the hat and FOOF! Lucy was as little as a leaf.

A Summer Song" is a 1964 song by the English pop music duo Chad & Jeremy. The song was written by duo partner Chad Stuart with Clive Metcalfe and Keith Noble. Like the duo's breakthrough selection, "Yesterday's Gone," "A Summer Song" is a reminiscence of a summer romance. However, "A Summer Song" eschews the Merseybeat sound of "Yesterday's Gone" in favor of a gentler folk-influenced arrangement, with the lyrics also being wistful in tone.

One warm summer night, a frog jumped into Lucy's room with an invitation for her to a birthday party and a magic paper party hat. Lucy put it on, and out in the garden, when a moonbeam touched the hat, Lucy was as little as a leaf. So begins Lucy's wonderful adventure. A taxi driven by Baby Bird, who is afraid to fly, picks Lucy up to take her to the party. On the way, they stop for Madame Mouse, wearing a brand new hat she's made; an inch-worm determined to get to the party in time to have some birthday cake; and a tiny tattered old doll whose owner, for whom he still longs, had lost him in the shadows of moonlight long ago. But suddenly, a huge owl blocks their way -- and he wants them all for his supper! Will they escape? Will they get to the party? Will the tiny doll ever be reunited with his beloved owner? In a lovely, lyrical text, the story unfolds to its happy ending. The magical pictures, painted with intricate detail and subtle colors, bring the moonlit garden world to life. This is an extraordinary book of great beauty and vivid imagination that small children and adults will look at again and again, discovering new wonders and surprises as they look. It is a treasure by the widely known and loved author/artist of The Maggie B.

I have bought this as a baby shower gift 3 times. I was so glad it was available on Amazon the last two times, because I couldn't find it in a store. The story is so creative, and the illustrations are beautiful and so colorful.
Gorgeous book.
Such a lovely story with gorgeous illustrations. Very whimsical and fun. All of the Irene Hass books are good but this one is my favorite.
Pleasant, but not nearly as satisfying as The Maggie B. Story meanders a bit and isnt as lovingly crafted as the latter.
Book was like brand new. Artwork is cool and the story is fun and mostly simple.
I have to thank my local public libraries (we have three close to home) for introducing so many enchanting children's books to us. My 5-year-old and I were perusing the shelves the other day and we came across this book - it's an over sized book but that makes it perfect as the illustrations by author/illustrator Irene Haas leap off the pages and draw the reader into a world filled with nature and surprises. A young girl, Lucy opens her window one warm summer night, and unknowingly gets drawn into a wonderful adventure. A frog delivers an invitation to a birthday party and before long, young Lucy becomes tiny Lucy and is conveyed via a nest "taxi" through the garden where she meets a host of interesting garden inhabitants, including a nasty old owl. When the party begins, even more surprises are in store, especially when the birthday guest is revealed. Lucy also finds a lost doll in the garden, a doll that has been lost for many, many years.

This is such a sweet and captivating tale - how often have we as children (and perhaps even as adults) imagined ourselves exploring nature through the eyes of the creatures around us. My little girl often tells me she wishes she were the same size as the snails and worms that crawl around our garden, so she might say hello and join them on their adventures. Well, I can't blame her - I find myself wishing the same at times! This is a fun, and beautifully illustrated read for adventurers of all ages.
This is by far, the best children's book I have ever read, and more importantly, shared with my children. I find myself sitting quietly with the book, intrigued with the illustrations, and looking at the details in all the little creatures. Not only is it beautiful to look at, it is also a delight to read. Charming, eventful, and beautifully written, Haas inter-twines the story with a touch of poetry, and the end result is astonishing.
Lucy goes on a magical journey to a birthday party, finding friends, taming the owl "villian", and ultimately finding happy endings. My boy liked it for the action and the interesting illustrations; my girl liked the female heroine and sweetness. With lyrical poetry and beautiful illustrations, this is a great gift book -- a bedtime favorite.
