Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K—Harry and his best friend, Horsie, are inseparable. One night, when he can't sleep, he climbs to the shelf that holds his new bubble-making machine. He creates bubbles that begin to surround objects in his room and float them out the window. That's not a problem until one of the diaphanous orbs picks up Horsie and silently drifts into outer space. Harry's adventure in rescuing his beloved stuffed animal is enhanced by retro-style, computer-generated illustrations in beige, blue, and black with touches of red and gold. Planets that hang from Harry's ceiling, a crescent moon shining into his room, and the racecar posters decorating his walls all foreshadow the boy's quest. The intriguing pictures vary from one or two per page to entire spreads, creating interest and flow. This simple story looks as though it could have been written and illustrated in the 1950s, but it will appeal to today's readers.—Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI END

One night I got it down to read to our two year old (who rarely sits still for books) and he was enthralled.

My boys and girls alike love this book. The illustrations are brilliant, and the story line is so sweet. Harry loses Horsie when a bubble carries him away into space, so Harry takes his rocket ship and chases after him. It is a regular in our bedtime story rotation around here.

Harry and his favorite stuffie, Horsie, were cuddled up together in bed, but both of them were wide eyed and awake because moonlight was shining through the window. Harry's "Super Duper Bubble Blooper" was just calling him from the shelf. He cautiously lay down on his belly and put one foot down on the floor and told Horsie to come along with him. They tiptoed across the room and Harry, with a grin on his face, looked up to the shelf. The two of them piled some toys up and soon the "BLOOP BLOOP BLOOP" bubbler was theirs. It wasn't long before bubbles began to float around the room.

BLOOP! One bubble caught his toy train and it quickly floated out the window toward Les Fleurs de Regine. His shoes, his robots, cars, planes and trains began to head to the sky. Next thing you know a horrifying thing happened . . . one of the bubbles took Horsie and "carried him up and away." Harry quickly donned a superhero outfit, his helmet and goggles and boarded his rocket ship to find him. Harry raced past Venus and Mars. No Horsie. He didn't turn up on Saturn, but "he did find his cars." Off to the Milky Way, but no Horsie. Was he ever going to find his best friend or was he going to travel the universe forever in search of him?

This out of this world charming space adventure will delight your imaginative youngster. I smiled at Harry's best friend, Horsie because in this house there was no going out anywhere without a best friend. Any stuffie, blankie or binkie afficionado will be able to relate to Horsie. I loved the way the artist captured Harry's little leg reaching its way to the floor. The retro-comic artwork with its colorful, but slightly darkened nighttime overtones, was very complimentary to this space adventure. This is one of those timeless bedtime stories that will not only capture your child's imagination, but probably will spark a few memories for you!

I really like this book, and the illustrations. We purchased two copies, one to read and the other one we will frame some of the pages to decorate our son's room.

Harry and Horsie tells the tale of a boy who's friend Horsie gets caught in a bubble and floats away. He then goes off to rescue him.

The artwork is fantastic and retro, with great minimalist coloring and comic effects. However, the story is a bit bland, short, and ends too quickly.

Not a bad book, overall.
