Reviews

"Helmore's spare, expressive text gives the children's close friendship the respect it deserves in this heartfelt story of love, separation, and reconnection....handsome illustrations... A quiet, comforting picture book that will resonate with its audience." --Booklist
"Parents and educators will especially appreciate how the protagonists' feelings are depicted in a realistic and convincing manner--and the validation that sadness and anger are OK. The book's inspiring ending makes it a good resource for children experiencing separation issues.... A beautiful and sensitive treatment of a common childhood experience." --Kirkus Reviews
"Helmore modulates emotions well... Expansive and warm with emotion, Jones's illustrations lend dreamy poignancy to Helmore's straightforward prose. A familiar childhood challenge surmounted with well-pitched emotional resonance from the creators of The Snow Lion." --Publishers Weekly
"Pair this story with Libby Gleeson's Half a World Away for group sharing about ways to deal with separation and other disappointments." --School Library Journal
