Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
"Rose could find anything with her nose." She was so good at detecting things that her sister called her Nosy Rosie. Rose hated the nickname. Although she told everyone not to call her that, the name stuck. Despite requests for help from her family, Rose stopped finding things. She went off by herself into the forest where she took a nap. When she awoke she sniffed the air and sniffed the ground. The ground smelled of powder and soap. She knew her baby brother was nearby. When Rose returned home with the lost baby, everyone agreed to stop calling her Nosy Rosie. Keller's family of friendly foxes brings to light a familiar problem: name calling. She deftly handles the problem in a story that has just enough drama for its intended audience. The uncluttered watercolor illustrations show the exuberance of the characters and allow the reader to focus on the feelings shown through the range of facial expressions. Keller's young audience will cheer for Rose.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Keller takes on the subject of name calling in a gentle, simple, and compassionate manner. Rose the fox uses her exceptional sense of smell to find things that others lose, such as a lipstick that "smells red," a baseball that "smells new," and the baby's bottle that smells like milk. Because of her abilities, she is dubbed Nosy Rosie, a name that everyone thinks is funny except Rose. Finally, when family members beg her to find their missing items, she shouts, "I don't hear you because that's not my name." The heartfelt dialogue poignantly conveys the little fox's hurt feelings and reads aloud perfectly. The colorful mixture of robust watercolors and simple black lines touchingly reveals each character's attitude through expressive body movement rather than facial features. Each spread has one big illustration that sometimes fills the entire page and an opposite page that displays smaller vignettes on a clean white background. The large text is easy to see even on a colored background, and the satisfying conclusion is one that children will cheer. A great choice to start a discussion of this issue, as well as a sweet story.-Kirsten Cutler, Sonoma County Library, CA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A wee fox's knack for locating lost items earns her an undesirable moniker in this sensitive tale from Keller. Like most preschoolers, Rose is eager to please. With her uncanny sense of smell, she excels at locating lost items for friends and family. Unfortunately, her special skill has negative consequences. In the typical way of young children, Rose's companions soon think up the name "Nosy Rosie." When her friends will not heed her requests to stop, Rose cunningly decides to ignore their requests for help. Keller tackles a very common scenario for this age group and readers will identify with Rose's dilemma. However, Keller offers them a slyly sensible, non-confrontational resolution. By tale's end, Rose's self-determination and her happy rescue of a lost baby earns everyone's respect and accolades. Keller's watercolor illustrations are winsomely simple. Her black line sketches gently colored in an array of muted pastels reflect the essential serenity at this tale's core. Keller's lovely story is a sure pick to share with any youngster struggling with peer issues. (Picture Book. 4-7)
