Product Details


Phillips's playful illustrations rendered in ink and watercolors provide strong context for assistance with word recognition, comprehension, and fluency. In the same vein as Cynthia Rylant's "Henry and Mudge" books, this well-crafted title is sure to be a hit with early readers
—School Library Journal

The text is divided into short chapters, with a large font and lots of white space around the text blocks to assist new readers. Illustrations in watercolor and ink provide an amusing personality for Poppy…
—Kirkus Reviews

Punchy dialogue and ample artwork nicely gear this to recent picture book graduates.
—Publishers Weekly

An amusing tale for readers who are beyond the beginning stage but not quite ready for full-length chapter books. With its good pacing and appealing artwork, the episodic story also works well as a read-aloud choice. … Engaging fare for young readers.

Comprised of six chapters, the length of the story makes it suitable for a child who is learning to read independently. Presented in a charming manner, the illustrations contribute to the adventuresome feel. This is a nice addition for children who are still mastering their reading skills.
—Library Media Connection

Perfect for kids looking for an adventurous read.
