LoveReading4Kids Says

February 2015 Debut of the Month   Inventive and witty, this is a story that is full of ideas and imagining rather than neatly tying up loose ends. Told more through the pictures than the words, the story of Isabel’s happiness as she plays with her friend Simon and her great unhappiness and sense of isolation when he moves away is movingly unfolded with very little explanation. This allows children to grieve with Isabel at her loss, to face up to her fears as they come crowding in and to enjoy her new friendship with her when it comes along. ~ Julia Eccleshare

The Good Book Guide Review

Isabel has a parrot who likes to sit on her head. She also has a friend called Simon. One day, Simon moves away, leaving Isabel feeling lost and lonely. That is until Chester comes… This is a delightful and unusual picture book about friendship. It is beautifully designed, and has quirky and bold illustrations drawn in an enchanting retro style. The cleverly pared-down text completely captures the range of emotions experienced by a lonely child. It is not only a sensitive and engaging picture book but also a very enjoyable story. (Ages 3–6)
