Product Details


Faber writes in a way that respects young readers’ intelligence, making this a chapter-book/middle-grade hybrid ideal for young, advanced readers. Full- and half-page black-and-white illustrations show that Kizzy and her family are black; her friend Pawel’s family is Polish. Featuring innocent content written with flair, this book fills a gap.
—Kirkus Reviews

The animal’s insatiable appetite wreaks amusing havoc on multiple occasions while triggering a surfeit of scatological humor. Faber neatly weaves Kizzy’s sly resourcefulness, devotion to Donut, and rapports with friends and family into a sprightly, uplifting story.
—Publishers Weekly

Faber’s determined protagonist, depicted in Jennings’s insouciant grayscale cartoons as a brown-skinned preteen with her hair in twists, is full of visions of her future equestrian successes with the rotund Donut—an endearing window into this age-level’s active fantasy life…That Faber manages to pull out a happy yet believable ending is testament to this chapter book’s abiding respect for its audience’s impossible dreams.
—The Horn Book
