Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Mildly appealing artwork can't save this saccharine and unimaginative story. Sunny the squirrel is sad when her friend Millie, a marmot, leaves her to hibernate for the winter. One day, Sunny makes a snowman that sings, tells stories, and becomes her friend. Then spring comes, and Fred melts, but Millie awakens and returns. Sunny is happy because she now has two friends-one for each season. The full-bleed, mixed-media artwork is saturated with color, and the animals-dressed in human clothing-while a bit on the cute side, are appealing. The textured backgrounds and rich colors work well to bring the seasons alive, and the animals' faces are quite expressive. Unfortunately, the text is trite and awkward, laden with stilted dialogue. For a more successful take on a friendship put on hold when one character hibernates, go with Paul Stewart's A Little Bit of Winter (HarperCollins, 1999).-Amy Lilien-Harper, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
When Millie the marmot goes into hibernation, her best friend Sunny the squirrel gets very sad. In the autumn, young squirrel Sunny rushes outside to play in the burnished leaves with her best friend Millie. When Millie explains that soon she'll go away until spring, Sunny is heartbroken; Mama tries to comfort her but isn't much help. Lonely Sunny fills an empty winter day making a snowman, and it delights her by coming to life. "My name is Fred," he says. They make up songs and rhymes and jokes together all winter long. When Fred melts, Sunny is sad again, but with the spring her beloved Millie returns. The duo makes plans for fun in spring and summer and autumn. Devos adds an extra layer of humor with cute outfits for the animal heroines. Her clean watercolor illustrations match Elschner's straightforward story about childhood feelings and the passing of the seasons. (Picture book. 3-6)
