Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Well-matched verse and art fuse simplicity and fancy in this warm companion to Momma Loves Her Little Son. Addressing his daughter, the narrator expresses his expansive, unconditional love: “Daddy loves his little girl,/ with arms spread open wide./ He cherishes the love you give/ and holds it deep inside”). As Cash’s narrative takes off on an imaginative track, primitive, sunlit paintings transport father and child to “a far-off magic land” and to an exotic palace near Kathmandu, before an eagle delivers them home. The fantasy sequences are framed by handsome patterned borders, and effectively crackled backgrounds give both the real and imaginary settings a timeless quality. Ages 4–8. (May)
Kirkus Reviews
Cash follows up his purple tribute to the love between mothers and sons (Momma Loves Her Little Son, 2009) with an equally labored celebration of the father-daughter bond. With this effort, he (mostly) leaves behind opaque figurative language on his flight of fancy, but scansion and sense still frequently elude him: In Katmandu, "We'll feast on cakes stacked ten feet high, and dance to Bluebeard's whistle. / We'll run faster than the tiger through the flowers and the thistles." Is a reference to the famed wife-murderer of folklore really the most apt one he could think of? Burckhardt's folk-art-style images replicate the stiff tableaux of the companion title, offering little warmth to readers. It is a shamelessly over-the-top goo-fest that consistently reaches for the easy image with seemingly no regard to art or craft. (Picture book. 3-5)

    Beautiful book

    I have been a fan of John Carter's children books since his first, "Momma Loves Her Little Son". I bought it for my wife last year and we have read it to our five year old numerous times. I bought his new book yesterday and went online today to put up a review and was surprised by the Kirkus review. It is a wonderful book. I would recommend it to anyone. Kirkus, who is usually a together organization has misquoted the book! Of course they are due their opinion, but they should at least read the text twice before quoting it. It is "Bluebird's whistle" and not "Bluebeard's whistle" as they have in their review. Unbelievable. This book is a beautiful accomplishment and I love Marc Burckhardt's artwork. It is magical journey. I read it the first time to my little girl last night. When we finished, she said: "Read it again, Daddy!" That's enough proof for me that it's up to par...

    Great Book

    There are so many books out there about fathers and sons I was happy to find one about daddies and little girls. I purchased this for a Father's Day gift and I can't wait for my husband to read it to our daughter. It is a wonderful book. I also can't believe that it was misquoted - bluebird is much different from Bluebeard. They should re-do their review.

    A wonderful book for fathers and daughters!!!!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you Mr. Cash for publishing this wonderful book! There are so many books about mothers and children but clearly not enough quality ones that describe the magical relationship between a father and a daughter.

    I highly recommend this book. My daughter and I purchased it for Father's Day but ended up reading it early. It's that good.
