Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Alex and Lulu are best friends. That's because they like a lot of the same things: running, jumping, and swinging at the park. But there are ways in which the duo differ, and when Lulu notes We are just SO different Alex begins to worry. He remembers that Lulu doesn't like soccer because it squashes her flowers. He wants to play ship's captain, and she wants to paint. Oh, dear. Alex confronts Lulu with the news that they might be dreaded opposites, but she calmly tells him she doesn't think so. Opposites are things like big and small, wet and dry, slow and fast. Alex and Lulu may be different, but they are together. There are many books about friends who don't see eye to eye, but this one is notable both for the clarity of its message and for the delightfulness of its art. In simple language (and with the added bonus of a lesson in opposites), this cat girl, Lulu, and dog boy, Alex, capture the essence of friendship and find the ways differences can enhance compatibility. (In the last spread Lulu is painting the cardboard boat that Alex is piloting.) This is also a particularly attractive piece of bookmaking. Alex and Lulu frolic on hefty pages against backgrounds of saturated color. Simple geometric shapes, bright colors, and bits of collage invite little ones into a safe, yet expansive world.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2009 Booklist"
