From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-- A charming romance that features a fine nightgown who finds true love with a pair of long johns after they are both blown from the clothesline. The text has the well-rehearsed, sure cadence of a favorite, tried-and-true bedtime story. The style is smooth, and the story has a rhythm that makes it a perfect read-aloud choice. The illustrations, however, would be best enjoyed close up. The watercolors are delicate, but add real movement and life. The use of shadow and subtle variations of color give the inanimate objects personality and the landscape a comfortable familiarity. All in all, an exceptionally creative, well-crafted marriage of story and art. --Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo and Erie County Public Library, Buffalo, NY

This copy of The Mushroom Man with illustrations by Barry Moser (a Caldecott winner illustrator) is an ex. library HB with a DJ and mylar covering. It was published by Green Tiger Press in 1993. Condition: Good/Very Good--book shows slight handling; binding tight; covers and DJ in nice shape.
From School Library Journal

Grade 1-4-In beautifully written prose, Pochocki relates the story of an elderly man who is content with his life, but still rather lonely. His occupation and his appearance set him apart from others in his town, for he works in the dark in a mushroom factory and, with his oversized head and pale white skin, even resembles the fungi with which he toils. He decides that a pet might be a friend and accept him as he is, and takes in a beautiful stray cat. But the animal, a born wanderer, leaves him. Finally he cautiously befriends just the right animal for him, a mole. Pochocki shows their developing friendship as they share truffles and Christmas gifts, both concluding that the very best gift is having a friend. This is a sweet, quiet story with a special message. Like the Mushroom man himself, it may not appeal to young children at first glance, but introducing them to it will be well worth the effort. Moser's realistic pictures are dark with just a glimmer of light. They reinforce the quiet, emotive quality of the narrative and are a fine accompaniment to the story.
