Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, spins a sweet, Brit-flavored tale around an irrepressible little red-haired charmer and her helpful friends from Bluebell Woods. Illustrated with cheerful watercolors that perfectly capture the feel of the English countryside, this sunny story follows Little Red as she sets out on a picnic with best pals Little Blue, Roany the Pony, and Gino the Dog. Not far along, they happen upon a bunny who's become stranded on a lily pad in the middle of a pond, and the friends devise an ingenious rescue plan. Little Red pulls a rope out of her magical sack of smiles; and when Roany pulls the bunny to safety, the whole gang continues on its merry way -- taking time out for a spirited game of leapfrog!
A fresh character with an old-fashioned feel, Ferguson's spunky little heroine with the checkered dress is sure to be a hit with Beatrix Potter and Raggedy Ann fans. And parents looking to pass on a message about friendship and cooperation will find this gentle read as sweet as honey in their afternoon tea. Shana Taylor
