Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A universal childhood experience-a favorite toy gone missing-retains a certain freshness as Ichikawa (the Tanya books) gives this topic a gentle twist and a lovely Paris setting. A spring day begins cheerily enough as Clementine, her stuffed pink rabbit La La Rose in tow, visits the Luxembourg Gardens with her little brother and grandmother. However, events take a dramatic turn when La La Rose inadvertently falls from Clementine's backpack and is unceremoniously tossed, kicked and dunked by various garden-goers. Ichikawa's choice of narrator puts a bright face on the increasingly tense sequence of events. La La Rose, the toy, relates her frightening separation from her beloved Clementine (and the joyful reunion that ensues) in a charmingly direct, childlike voice. Equally enjoyable is the backdrop of one of Paris's most beautiful (and family-friendly) spots. The artist's sunny, delicately outlined watercolors balance the details of this historic venue with the playful movements and general bustle of its many visitors. Carefully landscaped flowers and trees in full bloom, statues, the fountain where children sail wooden boats, a carousel and the elegant Luxembourg Palace are a treat to behold; readers needn't recognize the landmarks to fully appreciate the scenery or the story. A crisply rendered map of the site, located on the endpapers, will help readers visualize La La Rose's travails-and the treasures of the Gardens. Ages 4-up. (Mar.)

Children's Literature
La La Rose, the button-eyed stuffed pink rabbit and her little girl owner, Clemetine, are inseparable friends. Tucked comfortably in Clemetine's backpack, the two explore the carousel and playground of Luxembourg Gardens. While hurrying off to the pony rides, catastrophe befalls La La Rose when she tumbles from her secure nest. Boys toss her around like a basketball, a jogger accidentally tumbles her down a hill, and a young man and dog play Frisbee with the now bedraggled rabbit. Fortunately for La La Rose a little girl compassionately returns her to the distraught Clementine who with her brother and grandmother sit hopefully at the lost and found building. Reunited, the friends joyously embark on the long awaited pony ride. This warm and reassuring story exudes love and captures perfectly the affection a child has for a beloved stuffed toy. Handsome watercolor paintings reflect the old world charm of the Parisian landmark. Subtle facial expressions register La La Rose's dilemma and her reactions to her unexpected adventure. Ichikawa magnificently uses shadow and line to capture the anxiety of the little rabbit and her friend. The endpapers with a map and key of the gardens are a wonderful touch. One can imagine Clementine and La La Rose snuggling under the covers that night to whisper the details of their exhaustive day. 2004, Philomel Books, Ages 4 to 7.
—Beverley Fahey
Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Simple phrases and dreamy watercolor illustrations convey Ichikawa's fondness for Luxembourg Gardens, seen through the eyes of a pink stuffed rabbit. La La Rose goes everywhere with her little girl, Clementine, and the child's grandmother. Unfortunately, the rabbit gets lost during a visit to Paris's renowned park and finds herself swept up in a series of adventures before finally being reunited with her owner at dusk. The layout includes many charming details, like a clean, neatly dressed La La Rose depicted on the dedication page and a dirty, disheveled one at the back. Blush-colored endpapers feature a simple map of the park. A beautifully illustrated tale of friendship, enlivened by a bit of excitement and lots of affection.-Catherine Threadgill, Charleston County Public Library, SC Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
La La Rose, a stuffed rabbit, becomes separated from her "inseparable friend," young Clementine, during an outing to the famed Luxembourg Gardens of Paris. This is La La's story of their time apart, during which she only narrowly avoids disaster. Cowed by crows, used as a toss-toy, and tumbled down the manicured lawns of the bustling Jardins, La La's misadventures allow the reader to glimpse the park's Palais, its sailboat pond, and other extraordinary treasures through dappled trees and profusions of flowers rendered in Ichikawa's charming and fluid signature watercolors. Inspired use of light and shadow lets the artist communicate nuances of time, temperature, and tone, leading the reader to experience both the sun-kissed exuberance of children at play and the chill-tinged pathos of a little lovey lost. This lush retelling of the familiar lost-and-found tale might have been improved un petit peu by a guide identifying the unique objets d'art and architecture to which its readers are treated, but it is a lovely peek at Paris, to be sure.

    Highly Recommended!

    My granddaughter (now 2 yr. old) just loves this book. Her parents had to check it out of the library so often that I bought her a copy for her own. She loves saying that the little girl Clementine and her stuffed pink bunny La La Rose are "inseparable"!!! She also likes to point to the locations in the Luxembourg Garden map (on the cover endpapers) that are mentioned in the story.
