Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Little Quack illustrator Derek Anderson sheds happy light on the meaning of friendship with this perfect picture book about two unlikely best friends: a bluebird and a worm. When it's time for Blue Burt to fly south for the winter, both he they come up with a plan to make summer last forever, Blue Burt and Wiggles cement their friendship -- and leave readers feeling warm inside. With Anderson's winning artwork, smart story line, and on-target characters, kids will cheer over these two new buddies and will be hungry for more.
Kirkus Reviews
Two best friends fail to keep summer from ending, but won't let winter end their friendship. Blue Burt the bird doesn't want to fly south and leave his friend Wiggles the worm behind. A forgotten stash of art supplies suggests a solution. They tape the leaves back on the trees; paint the grass a summer green; glue paper flowers around the woods; and string up a paper sun and fluffy clouds. But when the other forest animals use this summer decor to get themselves ready for winter, the pair realizes that the forest cannot be fooled. Letters and phone calls keep them close until their joyous spring reunion. Anderson's pleasingly busy illustrations give readers a perspective that is only five inches high. He ingeniously fits more detail on each page by painting the wide-angle view over the spread, then layering a framed close-up. Half-hidden humorous details will keep youngsters' attention long after the first reading, while the expressive and adorable main characters will have them clamoring for more. A pure pleasure. (Picture book. 3-8)
