Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2—Part of a series of collaborations between Pixar Animation Studios and Disney Worldwide Publishing, this story of found friendship follows Shredder, a lonely shrew who sets out to find if there is something more to life "over there." Attracted by a reflection of light, Shredder leaves the safety of his home to explore the big world. His progress is halted when he comes upon a body of water. Coincidentally, the shiny object that drew his attention in the first place is an aluminum tin that he uses as a boat. Sadly, it is not exactly seaworthy. However, before he can drown, a mole named Nosey comes to his rescue. Because they have so much in common, the two become fast friends. Bonded together by a love of digging, similar fashion choices, and food, the shrew and mole find that companionship makes life so much sweeter. The story is told through a combination of the cinematic illustrations and the simplistic text. Children and adults alike will appreciate this story with its stunning, dark illustrations, endearing characters, and cinematic spreads that propel the story forward. Highly recommended.—Jasmine L. Precopio, Fox Chapel Area School District, Pittsburgh, PA

Format: Hardcover
The new series allows the artists of Pixar and Disney to stretch beyond animation and express their creative visions through picture book art and text. The first was No Slurping, No Burping by Lorelay Bove (who worked on Wreck It Ralph, Winnie the Pooh the upcoming Big Hero 6, and is the first designer to create new artwork for Walt Disney Records’ Legacy Collection CD albums.

For the second book in the series, Pixar Production Designer created Over There, a gentle children’s fable about a wistful little shrew named Shredder. This simple story, carefully laid out on each page spread, takes Shredder on a small quest to find one thing and somehow finding another.

With the quiet power of its peaceful forest settings and snuggly places for the characters to nestle, this is just the sort of story for bedtime, rainy days or those times when things just need to settle down. My kids are in their teens, but they still occasionally yearn for the comfort of story time. Pilcher himself takes part in readings of his book to groups of youngsters in public storytime events.

The story is very cute (not in a treacly way), but the artwork is over the top great, reminiscent of the classic Big Golden Books illustrated by such Disney artists as Al Dempster and Gustav Tenggren. It’s a grand tradition that will hopefully continue with further releases.

Format: Hardcover
Shredder is a shrew who has a good life and everything he needs, but he feels a little lonely. He feels there should be something more. So he sets out to find the answer to, what else could there be? He meets a mole named Nosey. They have a lot in common and become friends. Life is now uncommonly good.

All I can say about these illustrations is, wow! Just wow. They are beautiful, colorful, serene, and rich. I want to keep looking at the pictures over and over.

This story is simple, but beautifully worded. The words flow like a gentle stream until the conclusion when you smile and are happy for the new friends. You feel their joy even though it is a quiet joy. This book is advertized for ages 3-5. I highly recommend this book. I think even ages 6 and 7 would enjoy it. Because of its quiet tone, it would make a great bedtime story.
