Overview

More stories about two endearing friends.

The lovable vole and groundhog who first appeared in Rose and Riley return for three new stories about friendship and misunderstandings. First they head to the beach, where Riley is intent on finding a picture-perfect seashell, while Rose is content with what the tide has to offer. Then the two embark on a hike to hunt for wildflowers, which makes Riley rather nervous. And finally Riley seems to have a yard full of noisy birds, but it’s Rose who figures out the singing is coming from just one chatty mockingbird.

Cheerful watercolors enhance these tales for children ready to jump from picture books to beginning readers.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Emerging readers (and listeners) will enjoy the silly puns, the exciting discoveries in the natural world, and Yezerski's soft-toned, detailed watercolor-and-ink illustrations." — Booklist

"Yezerski's soft and friendly pictures are a perfect match for the unassuming but puckish text. New readers will love reading these on their own." — Kirkus Reviews

"Endearing." — School Library Journal

Children's Literature
Three delightful tales recount the adventures of best friends, Rose and Riley. First at the beach where Riley wants to find a seashell as big, pink and perfect as the one in the picture he is taking with him. When no such seashell can be found, Riley sulks while Rose collects shells; they are not perfect but they are real. On another day the two are off to hunt for wildflowers. Wild Flowers, thinks Riley and arms himself with a bat and a mask. In the end Riley discovers that Wild Flowers are not big or scary or wild at all—just flowers that no one has planted and no one takes care of. And then there is Riley's problem with all the birds in his yard. They sing all day and night. Rose discovers that there is only one bird—a mocking bird. Now Riley is really upset; the bird living in his yard is mocking him. Rose explains that "mocking" means "copying" as well as "making fun of." But this does not solve Riley's problem; he cannot sleep at night with all the noise. Will Rose be able to help him? Delicate watercolors capture the personalities of Rose and Riley and affectionately document their adventures and misadventures. 2005, Farrar Straus Giroux, Ages 3 to 7.
—Anita Barnes Lowen
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-A second book about two best pals, a vole and a groundhog. Illustrated with soft pastel watercolors, the three stories explore friendship and language with gentle humor. In the first tale, the animals are heading to the beach to search for shells, and Riley suggests they make "sand-wiches." Next, when Rose goes on a photo safari to hunt for wildflowers, Riley is convinced that "Wild Flowers" are dangerous and bravely accompanies her, baseball bat at the ready. In the third chapter, Rose explains to Riley that the "mocking bird" in his backyard is not making fun of him but copying the songs of other birds; she agrees to swap houses because the noise is keeping him awake. Puns and wordplay are introduced to beginning readers through easily understood vocabulary. Rose and Riley maintain their friendship in spite of their misunderstandings. Like James Marshall's "George and Martha" books (Houghton), Cutler's characters are endearing.-Jane Barrer, Washington Square Village Creative Steps, New York City Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Rose the little vole and Riley the big groundhog, have another trio of small adventures punctuated by intriguing thoughts on wordplay and perception. Rose and Riley set off for the beach with appropriate paraphernalia and Riley's picture of a big, pink seashell. Riley wants to find one just like it. When they don't, Rose's collection of broken, imperfect shells still smell like the sea and "feel good to hold." "A real seashell is different from a picture of a seashell, isn't it, Rose?" When they go to look for wildflowers, Riley takes a scary mask and a bat, because he's expecting "Wild Flowers" to attack. In the last story, Riley thinks his yard is too full of birds because they sing so many songs, even keeping him up at night. But Rose shows him that there's only one, and that the mockingbird's name doesn't mock him, but means copying, too. Yezerski's soft and friendly pictures are a perfect match for the unassuming but puckish text. New readers will love reading these on their own. (Easy reader. 6-9)

    YOUNGSTERS MAY LEARN AN APPRECIATION OF NATURE

    Rose, a pixie-like vole, and Riley, a sturdy groundhog won a host of preschool fans when they were introduced last year. Youngsters responded not only to their entertaining adventures but also to the strong bond of friendship between the two. Now, with 'Rose and Riley Come and Go' the perky pair are off on three new adventures. First they go to the beach where Riley wanted to find 'a big, pink perfect seashell' just like the one he had seen in a picture. Rose is more than happy with the smaller shells she finds because they're real, and Riley finally decides that the real shells feel good to hold and smell of the sea. Next, Rose wants to go in search of wildflowers. Riley isn't too sure about that and even brings along a bat to protect them from 'wild'flowers. Of course, Riley learns that wildflowers are not 'scary or bad.' Finally, when Riley first thinks his yard is filled with birds he is pleased. It's quite different when their singing keeeps him awake at night. It takes Rose to discover that there really aren't that many birds - just one mockingbird. Once again, Thomas F. Yezersky warmly accompanies the stories with detailed sun-washed illustrations as young readers learn about some of nature's wonders. - Gail Cooke
