Read full description of the books:
Oskar sets out—with a single coin—to find the perfect gift for his mother. And he spots it at once: a beautiful yellow rose. But when he meets an artist, Oskar trades the rose for a paintbrush. And when he meets a conductor, he trades the paintbrush for a sheet of music. . . .
The bustling streets are full of interesting people and delightful possible presents, and Oskar trades one gift for another, and another, and another! But what he finds by the end of the day is even more precious.
Simple kindness is at the heart of this enchanting, gloriously-illustrated tale.

Read information about the authorLinda Ravin Lodding is the author of "The Busy Life of Ernestine Buckmeister" (Flashlight Press, 2011) and the upcoming "Hold That Thought, Milton!" (illustrated by Ross Collins) and "A Gift for Mama" (illustrated by Alison Jay) both from Gullane Children’s Books, London. "A Gift for Mama" will be out in 2014 from Knopf/Random House in time for Mother's Day.
Linda is originally from New York, but has spent the past 15 years in Austria, The Netherlands and now Sweden. Today she lives in the historical city of Sigtuna, on the edge of Lake Mälaren, with her wonderful husband and daughter (who is, at times, as busy as Ernestine) and their part-time dog Nino (who speaks Dutch, Swedish, Spanish and a smattering of English).
With the publication of “The Busy Life of Ernestine Buckmeister” Linda has realized her dream to become a published children’s book author – a dream that started to take shape 13 years ago when her own daughter was born and Linda was reunited with her favorite children’s books. Some of the authors that Linda counts among her favorites are Judy Blume, E.L. Koningsberg, Madeline L’Engle and the author of the “B is for Betsy” books whose name Linda has ashamedly forgotten.
In "The Busy Life of Enrnestine Buckmeister", young Ernestine’s week is chock-a-block with classes. Water ballet with Mrs. Goldfisher. Yodeling with Little Old Lady Hoo. Yoga with Guru Prakesh Pretzel. Tuba with Mr. Oompah! Ernestine is the poster girl for today’s over-scheduled child. But Ernestine is about to do something no Buckmeister has ever done before. PLAY!
Like her character Ernestine, Linda has taken lots of classes – everything from Archery, Chinese Cooking, Figure Skating, Fencing, Clogging (that has nothing to do with shower drains), to Zumba. She loves dreaming up stories, biking along the canals, taking photos, doing pottery, traipsing through quaint towns, playing the flute…and sometimes just playing.
Linda graduated from Barnard College, Columbia University (New York) and has an MBA from New York University’s Stern School of Business. When Linda isn’t writing, she’s usually working for the United Nations as a media and public information specialist – or eating heavily frosted cupcakes.
