Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Hanging on the line with the rest of the wash, Rosebud (a beauteous nightgown) chooses to ignore Red Flannel (the well-worn long johns), who loves her dearly. Rosebud has no use for this ``coarse fellow.'' After all, the lace-edged nightgown was made by hand in France, while the long johns were purchased from the bargain table at an Army-Navy surplus store. Despite Rosebud's indifference, Red Flannel continually somersaults about in the wind, trying to impress her. One winter day, in the middle of a fierce snowstorm that blows the clothes high into the air, the devoted garment puts his life on the line for her, and she finally recognizes his worth. Employing many fanciful and heartwarming touches, Pochocki tells a sweet, if slightly corny story. Yet it is Owens's detail-rich watercolors--equally effectively depicting tranquil interior scenes and the raging blizzard outdoors--that steal the show. Ages 4-8. (Feb.)
Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
A worn pair of long johns, called Red Flannel, falls in love with a beautiful nightgown, named Rosebud. She considers him coarse and feels it is below her dignity to speak to him. Her haughty attitude changes when a snowstorm begins and she is protected by Red Flannel. How they fall in love is told in a smoothly flowing text with a folktale-like quality. It is melodramatic and humorous in just the right spots. The illustrations, conveying the everyday, natural world, are the perfect counterpoint for this whimsical tale. The way Red Flannel, Rosebud and the other items on the clothesline flap in the breeze, one can imagine them conversing. The drama of the snowstorm is strikingly rendered. This love story, perfect for reading aloud, will warm all hearts on a cold winter's day. It was originally published by Henry Holt and Company. 1999 (orig.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-- A charming romance that features a fine nightgown who finds true love with a pair of long johns after they are both blown from the clothesline. The text has the well-rehearsed, sure cadence of a favorite, tried-and-true bedtime story. The style is smooth, and the story has a rhythm that makes it a perfect read-aloud choice. The illustrations, however, would be best enjoyed close up. The watercolors are delicate, but add real movement and life. The use of shadow and subtle variations of color give the inanimate objects personality and the landscape a comfortable familiarity. All in all, an exceptionally creative, well-crafted marriage of story and art. --Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo and Erie County Public Library, Buffalo, NY
