Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Following the trend to give the picture book crowd a taste of chapter books, this book is made up of three little stories about two birds who are friends. When Poppy is invited to go over Ella's house, he decides to get dressed up by taping blue paper feathers all over his body. He sneezes while eating her Spaghetti ala Ella, scattering the feathers, and she can't help but giggle. Running after him as he flies off in embarrassment, she lovingly hugs him and he learns that friendship is more than skin deep. Next, the two of them can't seem to agree on what to do together at the beach. When Ella wants to fly her kite, Poppy wants to play ball. When Ella swims, Poppy reads. Finally they get mad, but then decide to eat some mint chocolate chip ice cream, together. It's OK for friends to do different things sometimes! Lastly, when Poppy finds out that Ella is afraid of the dark, he gives her a box of fireflies to light up the night. With friends like that, we'd all be happier. Simple illustrations throughout are a good match for the text. These are three very sweet stories, and young children will appreciate the sound advice hidden within. 2000, Hyperion Books, Ages 3 to 6, $15.49 and $14.99.

PreS-Gr 1-These slight stories deal with the ups and downs of friendship. First, Poppy tries to enhance his appearance by taping blue paper feathers all over himself with embarrassing results. In "To Beach His Own," the two birds go to the seashore, but can't agree on anything until the ice-cream dog appears. The last tale describes Ella's fear of the dark and Poppy's ingenious solution. The humorous, colorful cartoons are small and surrounded by plenty of white space, giving the pages a simple, uncluttered look. Clever details like the pictures on the wall, the storm clouds over the bickering friends, and the flashlights surrounding a frightened Ella heighten interest. Arnold Lobel's "Frog and Toad" series (HarperCollins) as well as James Marshall's "George and Martha" books (Houghton) are more appealing stories of friendship, but larger collections may want to add Poppy.-Sheilah Kosco, Rapides Parish Library, Alexandria, LA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
