Reviews

Madame Badobedah is a wonderfully appealing character who proves that you're never too old for an adventure, while precocious, earnest Mabel has a pitch-perfect narratorial voice. O'Hara's bright watercolors are whimsical and just a little retro. . . . Marvelous fun: Who wouldn't want a friend like this?
