Reviews

* "Understated illustrations made of textured papers in muted tones keep the focus on the developing friendship and the slapstick humor. Here's hoping for a return of Bob and Flo...and for every preschooler to find a friendship like theirs."
--Kirkus, starred review

"Large simple shapes and uncluttered pastel backgrounds will appeal to very young children. Youngsters will also enjoy spotting the pink pail right in front of Flo's eyes."
--Booklist

"Ashdown's simply composed mixed-media illustrations featuring large, solid-shaped penguin characters are well suited for group sharing, and the collage-like elements add enough detail to hold young viewers' attention."
--Horn Book Magazine

"The spare, deadpan narration follows Flo's ensuing search as she nonchalantly passes by bucket-shaped sand castles and casually notices "there was something different" about Bob's appearance. Ashdown's charming mixed-media illustrations show Bob's humorous transformations of the bucket into a hat, a stepping stool, and a drum."
