Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In this chapter book two friends face a number of problems and gamely help each other. Iris wants to ride a horse named Rain. Walter teaches her patience and the way to become friends with the horse. When it comes to going to school, Iris is a little afraid, but Walter convinces her that she is brave. As for Walter, when in school, he is unhappy because the teacher calls him Walt, but he has no idea how to tell her that he prefers his full name. He finally comes up with a solution, thanks to a message from Iris. While the horse situation in particular may be improbable, it and the other stories are empowering for young kids who solve their problems without adult assistance. Kids will like Iris and Walter and will also enjoy seeing the stories play out through the pen and ink watercolors by Davenier. 2001, Harcourt, . Ages 5 to 8. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-In the first two chapters of this easy-reader, Walter teaches Iris to win the trust of a horse so that she can fulfill her dream to ride Rain "over green meadows, down a path of pines, straight into the sparkling stream." Although Iris is brave enough to accomplish this feat, chapter three deals with her first-day jitters when starting a new school, and the support she receives from her family, classmate Walter, and their teacher. Next, she helps Walter communicate his wish to be called by his full name instead of Walt. This sequel to Iris and Walter (Harcourt, 2000) celebrates friendship, validates emotions, and exemplifies problem solving. While readers new to these characters aren't told that Iris recently moved to the country, that detail is not essential to understand these charming stories. Davenier's expert use of pen and ink on keacolor paper results in cartoon characters whose facial expressions and body language exude emotion. The vibrant colors flow with captivating hues and shadows, and several sweeping vistas are printed on double-page spreads. Treat beginning readers to this book about common childhood events and feelings.-Laura Scott, Baldwin Public Library, Birmingham, MI Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
