Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carly Reagan
Pelly and her dog, Mr. Harrison, embark on an exciting adventure to the moon in their rocket ship bathtub, where they make a new friend and experience life as they know it with an intergalactic twist. Playing gravity leaping and spaceship racing, eating moon pies and "s'moons," Pelly's adventure gives her new insight into an unknown culture, how it mirrors her own, and into the power of her own imagination. Whimsical and unique colored pencil and cut paper illustrations accompany the simple, well-chosen words in the text, and help reinforce the tone of peaceful wonderment. A sweet and thoughtful story that leaves the reader wondering at the continuing possibilities of imagination, adventure, and making new friends. An interesting way to discuss unknown worlds with children, what they expect might be to be there, and what they might have in common with children from other lands. Also helpful for the highly logical child who may need a safe and simple introduction into the world of pretending. Reviewer: Carly Reagan
Kirkus Reviews - Kikus Reviews

The going-to-bed routine morphs into a fantastic adventure when Pelly notices an unusual fixture attached to her family's bathtub. Accompanied by her canine sidekick, Mr. Harrison, the inquisitive child soars into outer space when her bath rockets out the window. The lively pair meets aliens who demonstrate striking similarities to their human counterparts. At times, the storyline's action merely hums along—"Pelly and Mr. Harrison got into the bathtub and floated back down to earth"—but curious details add depth. The sun heats the alien version of s'mores (s'moons), while moon pies prove to be a delectable delicacy. There are no unexpected bumps along the journey home, as Pelly returns to reality just in time to hear her mother's call. Both perspective and Pelly's stature vary whimsically against the vast space skies. Solid bursts of colors add drama, and the repeated use of compact typed captions ("moon... moon... moon....") make for playful use of environmental print. A graph-paper background peeks through thinly applied paint, adding a sense of scientific discovery to the adventure. The concluding page hints at the possibility of a remarkable reunion. All in all, a light, imaginative romp. (Picture book. 4-7)
