Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Simmons' painterly illustrations strengthen the story with their bright, vibrant colors for the characters in contrast to more muted shades for the background."  —Books for Keeps

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—In Matty Takes Off, the sweet, overstuffed bear is content living with his equally overstuffed cat. He is particular about his possessions and keeps them tidy and in order. When his sister invites him to visit, he packs up a truckload of things essential for his trip. But the bumpy road loosens the tarp, and by the time he reaches Milly's pink house, his cherished belongings are gone, forcing him to recognize what's really important. In Matty in a Mess, he is still very fussy and tends to put cleaning and chores before play. Milly likes to enjoy life and play first. After an enormous storm and a bump on the head, the bears learn to enjoy both the messiness of play and the cleanliness of completed work. The text placement and movement keep the stories lively and invite reader interest. However, there is a confusing element in these two books. The bears' relationship changes from brother and sister to "two bears who lived together." Simmons's watercolor illustrations are full of personality and warmth. The cool tones in the backgrounds help the cuddly and endearing characters stand out even among their clutter. Individually, these books will be crowd-pleasers, and readers and listeners will take the messages to heart.—Susan E. Murray, Glendale Public Library, AZ
