Product Details

Praise

Every page is a double spread of delights in full color using pastel watercolor with digital tools. Children will love the carnival and castle environments, the roller-skating polar bears in tutus, and the friendly animal playmates. It’s a dreamland of wonders, a perfect isle to comfort angry or sorrowful moments in a child’s day.
—Booklist

LaRochelle (Moo!) and Kim (La La La) have created the picture book equivalent of a guided visualization…those with a stubborn case of weltschmerz should welcome the calming sojourn.
—Publishers Weekly

Throughout, the narrator’s questions and suggestions have a peaceful and calming effect and add an interactive layer to the tale. A wonderful depiction of the power of imagination that encourages young children to look inwardly when faced with life challenges. A strong choice for most shelves.
—School Library Journal

Among picture books for younger readers, David LaRochelle’s playfully titled Isle of You is imbued with a dreamlike richness and features warm pastel illustrations by Jaime Kim…This is a lovely, soothing antidote to daily snappishness and stress.
—The Guardian
