Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Matthew and Tilly live in the same neighborhood in the heart of a big city, and they do everything together: ride bikes, play street games, sell lemonade. But even the best of friends quarrel now and then--in this case, a broken purple crayon is the problem, and Matthew and Tilly go their separate ways. It is not long, though, before the two realize that everything is more fun when they have each other. Apologies come quickly and easily, and the two are ``together again.'' This is not an unfamiliar tale, but it is told here with simple eloquence and poignancy. Text and illustrations are beautifully balanced: Peck's depiction of Matthew, sitting dejectedly on the stairs of his apartment building, seems to make the words ``By himself'' ring with loneliness. There can never be too many books about the importance of friendship and forgiveness--especially when they are of this caliber. The fact that Matthew is white and Tilly is African-American adds further merit to this exemplary effort. Ages 4-8. (Feb.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-- Matthew and Tilly, a pair of inner-city kids, are close friends. They play and work together every day. But even the best of friends occasionally get on one another's nerves, and when a crayon breaks, so does the relationship. However, all that is needed is a cool-down period and soon Matthew and Tilly are back in favor with each other. This modest story line swells with the visual excitement of Peck's paintings. The dreary streets of a decaying city are depicted in somber shades and broad brush strokes, brightened here and there by the light on crates of sidewalk vegetables, or the bright red of vending machines. The gloom of their estrangement is feelingly pictured as Matthew sits alone in a dark, barren stairwell. These pictures seem to owe something to the post-Impressionist work of Paul Cezanne, but are by no means merely imitative or derivative. Their power lingers in the mind long after they have been seen. --Ruth Semrau, Lovejoy School, Allen, TX
