Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Employing bright crystalline hues, sharp black lines, and delightfully delineated details, the playful illustrations clearly convey the specifics of the story lines while establishing a fanciful world in which wondrous things are believably commonplace . . . These books will captivate youngsters’ imaginations and nurture literacy skills.” —School Library Journal
Publishers Weekly

In this outing, fans will discover a mellower side to the can-do canine that debuted in The Adventures of Polo. French artist Faller creates another inventive, wordless story revealed in panel art, although more modest in scope than its predecessors. (And in literal size, too, with a smaller trim size and less than half the length.) On his small island, Polo, a cafe au lait-hued pup, lives a quiet life, watering tidy rows of tomato plants and dining alone on the fish he catches. That is, until Lily, a spunky rabbit who cruises around on a cloud, plops into his tree house bedroom. (Aficionados may recall her cameo in Polo: The Runaway Book.) Faller's jewel-toned panels are wry and expressive: flapping ears and a lifted eyebrow convey Polo's huffy response to a playful squirt of the garden hose. While still quirky--Polo answers Lily's call on a telephone ringing in a left-behind suitcase--this title shifts from the surreal slapstick of its predecessors to the gently offbeat unfolding of a friendship. Published simultaneously with Polo and the Magic Flute. Ages 4-8. (May)

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Polo waters plants in his garden and gathers vegetables to prepare a meal in his familiar tree house which takes up most of the island he lives on. He adds a freshly caught fish to his stew, sets up a table and eats his meal in his front yard, cleans up his mess, reads a book in bed, and drifts off to sleep. Lily arrives on a cloud just as the sun is rising and jumps into Polo's room, landing on his bed with a thump. The two friends spend the day together. After breakfast they play games with water, a ladder, and an umbrella. Then they prepare and share a festive meal. After dinner Lily jumps back on her cloud and sails away. A lonely Polo notices that Lily has left her suitcase behind, and he gets a pleasant surprise as he prepares for bed. This is another gentle, wordless story about this likeable, flop eared dog from a popular French artist in the "Polo's House" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2–These whimsical wordless picture books star a likable pup with a brown spot over one eye and floppy ears that stand up, down, or out to the sides to express a variety of emotions. Polo lives in a cozy duplex inside a large tree that fills up most of a tiny island. In the first story, the pooch’s solitary lifestyle is interrupted when Lily, a rabbitlike character cruising along on a flying cloud, accidentally crashes into his window and the two spend a pleasant day together. In the second book, Polo’s fishing expedition turns into a Zen adventure, as he is shipwrecked on an island where he meets a mystical koala and journeys home via a flying rug powered by a magic flute. The action is conveyed entirely through the cartoon artwork, presented on single pages and in panels. Employing bright crystalline hues, sharp black lines, and delightfully delineated details, the playful illustrations clearly convey the specifics of the story lines while establishing a fanciful world in which wondrous things are believably commonplace. The wordless format encourages kids to take an active role in the storytelling, identifying the important plot elements, discerning the sequencing, and verbalizing the action. These books will captivate youngsters’ imaginations and nurture literacy skills.–Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal
