Praise

* “The author of Little Dog Lost has another winner here. . . . This wonderful book is filled with pictures, drawings, and notes. . . . Carnesi’s sweet illustrations perfectly capture the joys of friendship, the frustration at being left behind, and the satisfaction in making something for a friend. The spare text is an excellent complement to the lively illustrations, and the addition of speech balloons for Beatrice’s big emotions really lets her perky personality shine. Sure to be a hit.” — School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW

“Little readers will squeal with delight. . . . Beatrice’s naïveté will evoke chuckles. . . . Very funny pictures. . . . [The illustrations] skillfully convey both the many anthropomorphic touches, such as Beatrice’s carrot-decorated blanket, and a subtle range of emotions on the best friends’ faces. Winningly sweet.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Carnesi is one of those authors who make storytelling appear effortless and intuitive while conveying a wealth of empathy, personality, and humor. There isn’t a wasted word in her text, and the watercolors brim with good will and just a touch of silliness. Her take on maintaining connection in the face of separation feels both timeless and very much of the moment.” — Publishers Weekly

“Appealing ink, watercolor, and colored-pencil illustrations draw readers in with their energy and emotion . . . strong pacing. The succinct text and illustrations work seamlessly together to tell the story with humor and feeling, using page turns to heighten drama. . . . Spirited look at friendship through the seasons.” — The Horn Book

“A heartwarming book of friendship. . . . The beautifully expressive illustrations make this a wonderful addition to any picture book collection.” — Library Media Connection
