Synopsis

Lucy's Lovey by Betsy Devany

Lucy's favourite lovey, Smelly Baby, is her most loyal companion. They are simply inseparable. Smelly Baby may be pretty rag-tag and, well, smelly, but her smell is very much a part of why Lucy loves her so much. Then disaster strikes as Smelly Baby accidentally flies out the car window and gets LOST! What will Lucy do without Smelly Baby in her life? With artwork by the award winning, New York Times bestselling illustrator Christopher Denise, this winning picture book debut celebrates the irreplaceable bond between a little girl and her favourite doll.

Reviews

Denise's vignette and full-page illustrations portray the magical relationship between a young girl and her lovey, and the facial expressions, especially Ivy's, are spot-on. There is no child who won't empathize with Lucy and cheer for her reunion with Smelly Baby. -Kirkus Reviews Suited for one-on-one sharing. . . The pictures are delightful . . . Readers will want to pore over the artwork and will enjoy this domestic drama. -School Library Journal
