Editorial Reviews

Review

“What elevates this is McCarty’s fabulous art, which brings the idea of a really big family delightfully to life. A warm and wonderful treat that’s great for family story hours.” (Booklist (starred review))

“Still bewitching, yet serious about her strong opinions, Chloe continues to stand out in a crowd.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“The gentle, child-friendly artwork complements the story told with minimal text. The result is a calming bedtime story for family sharing.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

“Drawn in delicate pen-and-ink and watercolors, McCarty’s impeccably cute creatures seem to hover magically in midair, like little balloons in some fantastical, vaguely Japanese idyll. …After this ode to imaginative play among siblings, we can understand why Henry fell so deeply in love.” (New York Times Book Review)

“In CHLOE, McCarty captures the charm of a large squashed-together family, just in time for summer reunions.” (Boston Globe)

Since they had so much fun with that, I purchased the book for her to make a connection with a story and real happenings in her family.

After reading to my 3.5 year old,she immediately asked for bubble wrap and I dug some out and she played with it for days and days!

Over all this was an incredibly funny story about one family's quest to beat the TV habit that I think will resonate both with kids and with adults alike. I even laughed out loud when I reached the last page. Considering that most picture books barely make me crack a smile, that alone was worth the price.

McCarty's illustrations seem tailor made to charm your socks off. Half of this book's fun is seeing so many rolly-polly, line drawn bunnies scurry around each other in the controlled chaos of a large house hold. I hope he's planing on doing more books with this particular family!

My Henry, all of 6 and a bit, fell for Chloe long ago in "Henry in Love". So we had to get this book all about Chloe and her family. Well after three readings on the first night Henry is even more enamored. Chloe is a strong and clever heroine. Henry will be looking for her at school on Monday and probably for some years to come. Oh and the books pretty good too.

Chloe is adorable. she loves her family and their time together. she is not willing to give it up to a T.V. Her siblings after a little while agree, time together is more fun than watching t.v. here's where it went wrong in my opinion...dad ask them to please be quiet(at least he was polite) and then when all the children started to play he sent them to bed..REALLY!! i think it would have been much better to see dad agree that time together was more fun and turn the t.v. off. Disappointed!!
