Lord’s engaging narrative is well-attuned to the concerns of readers who find comfort in stuffed animals. . . . An appealing addition to the Book Buddies series.
The series’ second title gently explores children’s fears and sensitivities. The message of empathy is reinforced by Graegin’s soothingly retro art. . . . A charming balm for anxious small fry.
Sweet and sincere, the ‘Book Buddies’ series is best suited to pre-ironic children ages 5-7. Cynics need not apply.
