What if timid Baby Lincoln broke free of her bossy sister and set off on an unexpected journey? Kate DiCamillo presents a touching new adventure set in Mercy Watson’s world.

Baby Lincoln’s older sister, Eugenia, is very fond of telling Baby what to do, and Baby usually responds by saying “Yes, Sister.” But one day Baby has had enough. She decides to depart on a Necessary Journey, even though she has never gone anywhere without Eugenia telling her what to take and where to go. And in fact Baby doesn’t knowwhere she is headed — only that she was entirely happy in the previous night’s dream, sitting aboard a train with a view of shooting stars. Who might Baby meet as she strikes out on her own, and what could she discover about herself? Will her impulsive adventure take her away from Eugenia for good?

This is a good book about finding yourself, but also of sisterly love. The two sisters are still sisters, no matter how bossy one can be. Baby leaves because she feels she is missing a part of herself. What I like is that she finds what she needs on the train – it didn’t really matter where she went. Ms. DiCamillo’s writing style has a good way of speaking to kids. The story is pretty quirky, but it is well-suited for the book and its characters. The book is good for beginning readers, as it has an age-specific vocabulary that kids can learn from. This is a nice, quick read, and kids will like reading about who Baby Lincoln meets on her journey. Older kids will love the story development and reading as Baby discovers herself. Please note I received a free review copy of this book.
