Reviews

"Illustrator Patricia Metola brings a delightful crayon-like innocence to her sophisticated skill with color schemes, layout, and transmission of feelings. . . . Apple and Magnolia stands out as a loving way to convey to three-to-seven year olds that unusual friendships have the power to see us through." - Spirituality & Practice


"Nana's assertions about the power of 'unusual friendships' encourage readers to consider this heartwarming tale in both literal and figurative ways. . . .What's not to love about this endearing and effervescent picture book?" --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)


"Emotive, whimsical illustrations reminiscent of children's drawings enliven this story about the power of friendship."--Foreword Reviews (starred review)


"A sweet story about how love makes a difference, Britta's father and sister are naysayers, but Britta soldiers on and believes in the power of friendship. The text is lyrical and the whimsical illustrations are darling." - Kiss the Book
"Beautifully told and illustrated, this book is a gem on many levels.
The relationship with wise Nana illustrates the importance of
intergenerational stories; Britta's determination shows how strong girls
can be, and it shows that we all have an impact on the natural world." -
