Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Oliver
Young cow Matilda Rose loves to kiss. Unfortunately, she has lost her kisses just as her daddy is due home from a business trip. Mommy assures her that the kisses will be there when she needs them, but a distressed Matilda embarks on a hunt to find her lost kisses. Along the way she asks her friends if they have seen her kisses, to no avail. Matilda Rose cannot tell them what her kisses look like but she knows what they feel like: "soft like Mommy's sweet-dream-kiss." She knows what they taste like and what they sound like: "wet, slurpy, sloppy sound like baby Nat's slobber-kiss," but not where her kisses have gone. Finally, the time to pick up Daddy from the airport arrives. Many people at the airport have their kisses, which makes Matilda teary. Finally Daddy arrives and, with a "Matilda Rose, where's my big smoocheroo?" he finds Matilda's kisses at last. This slight but sweet tale is perfect for preschool story time. Bland's mainly pencil illustrations are livened up with splashes of subtle watercolors. The abundant white space and style of drawing are reminiscent of Ian Falconer's Olivia and just as endearing. The attention to detail and facial expressions are exceptional. This is a good addition of for all preschool collections. Reviewer: Sharon Oliver

PreS-Gr 2- Matilda Rose is a cow who loves to smooch, but suddenly, on the day her father is due to return home from a "Moo York" trip, she fears that she has lost all of her kisses. She frantically peers inside cereal boxes, beneath her bed, and up and down grocery store aisles. Although she can't describe what they look like, she knows how they feel ("soft like Mommy's sweet-dreams-kiss"), taste ("yummy like a chocolaty candy-kiss"), and sound ("slurpy, sloppy" like a baby's "slobber-kiss"). When she hears Daddy's "booming voice" at the airport-"Matilda Rose, where's my big smoocheroo?"-she "feels something deep inside her heart" and discovers where her kisses come from. Bland's striking black-and-white pencil illustrations have splashes of watercolor highlighting the wide-eyed cow's polka-dotted tights as she searches high and low. While the story is a bit cloying, Matilda Rose has a whimsical charm.-Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada
