Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Lies, creator of the best-selling Bat Book series, brings his whimsical storytelling and strong ability to portray natural settings to this tale of friendship. The backdrop throughout is an intensifying blizzard, depicted so well that readers can see the strength of the wind on the blown-back fur of the animal characters' faces. The action kicks off with Izzy, a chipmunk, getting a letter from her friend Bear, urging her to Please come at once! Outfitted with a striped scarf and tiny lantern, petite Izzy sets out, trudging through the deepening snow. Just as Izzy can walk no farther, she encounters a friend, a sweatshirt-wearing squirrel, who carries Izzy on his back through the treetops until the branches become too slippery to grasp. Next, a duck in a Peruvian hat appears, taking the squirrel and chipmunk on a hazardous flight, which brings them to a sweater-clad raccoon, who gives all three a ride to Bear's door. Lies' arresting illustrations of the animals' journey through the wintry woods include dramatic double-page spreads and paneled scenes that convey the storm's mounting ferocity. The surprise resolution upon reaching Bear's cozy den is highly satisfying, as is the book's depiction of a blizzard that is no match for resourcefulness and camaraderie. This bracing story weaves warmth and excitement into a memorable celebration of friendship.--Fletcher, Connie Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Expressive artwork distinguishes this celebration of working together by Lies (The Rough Patch). "Dear Izzy," a note from Bear reads. "Please come at once!" It's starting to snow, but Izzy the chipmunk starts out gamely, swinging lantern in tow. Soon, she's up to her snout in drifts, and Scritch the squirrel offers her a lift: "The treetop road is the way." As she clings to his green jacket, he swings from branch to branch until it gets too slippery. Then Bingle the duck takes to the air with the pair ("Skyway is better than battling branches!"), and Snaffle the raccoon steps in to get the group to Bear's door just before the snow covers them all. In the end, an unexpected surprise awaits Izzy, and the friends convene in front of a warm fire, safe and jovial. The spreads show detail in high definition: every stitch on Bear's cabled sweater can be counted, and snow particles fly with startling realism as Bingle flaps through the storm. This warmhearted friendship adventure is a good choice for sharing at bedtime, or during a classroom break, in any weather. Ages 4-7. Agent: Erin Murphy, Erin Murphy Literary.
