Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Max and his friends Big Blue (a turquoise elephant) and Little Pink (a not-so-little fuchsia porker) are eating green jelly when Max has what seems like a great idea: "Let's go outside and wish on a star!" The trouble is, Big Blue is afraid of the dark; worse yet, Little Pink teases him about it ("Big Blue is a scaredy-elephant!"). Max gives the pig a good talking-to (" `But you're scared of swinging high on the swings,' said Max, `and Big Blue never makes fun of you' "), then creates a starry glow-in-the-dark bedroom mobile to assuage Big Blue's fears. Wilson-Max renders his na f-styled illustrations in his characteristic thick brushstrokes and bold colors. His story starts out promisingly enough, and the friends certainly end up banding together. But youngsters may feel that they are left hanging as to whether Big Blue ever conquers his fear of the night. Ages 2-5. (Mar.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
Large, boldly outlined, gouache illustrations show Max (a preschooler of African descent in overalls) and his friends Little Pink (a bright fuchsia pig) and Big Blue (a sky-blue elephant) as they venture outside to enjoy a starry night. Big Blue is afraid of the dark, however, and soon goes inside. When Little Pink chants "Big Blue is a scaredy-cat..." Max reminds her that "...Big Blue never makes fun of you." Toddlers and preschoolers will appreciate Max's efforts to make Big Blue feel better; he fills the bedroom with paper stars hung from the ceiling. This gentle story of friendship, with the underlying message that it is normal to have fears, is a good choice for story time or circle time. 2001, Jump at the Sun/Hyperion, $14.99. Ages 2 to 5. Reviewer: Cherri Jones
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-A tidy tale of respecting the fears of others. Bold lines and rich colors portray spare figures of a young African-American hero with his pink pig and blue elephant companions. The book gratifies in its various approaches to worries, as the boy shows Big Blue why night can be beautiful instead of scary, compares his fear of darkness to pig's trepidation about heights, and finds a way for all to enjoy stars from the comforts of home. The undemanding text includes enough repetition to serve beginning readers. A child-empowering, different view of dealing with fears.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
