Product Details


The gouache illustrations are filled with details that bring light and life to the pages, from each water droplet to every rolled-up sleeve. Hudson, although enormous, is drawn with expressive eyes and a lovely green hue that reflects the stars in the sky…Outdoor enthusiasts will celebrate this brave young heroine as she schools the town on acceptance.
—Kirkus Reviews

Van Dusen’s stunning illustrations offer unique perspectives, from an aerial view of Hattie first making eye contact with two glowing eyes beneath the silvery water to a vertical spread of Hudson triumphantly emerging in the sunlight with Hattie perched on his head…This eloquent, evocative book about compassion is perfect for sparking discussions on prejudice. A sensational choice for a seasonal storytime.
—School Library Journal

The story’s message—don’t judge by appearances—is gently delivered in a tale just right for one- on-one sharing.
