Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3–Sitting in the park on a lovely day, George, a rabbit, and Oscar, a cat, enjoy hot chocolate and jelly beans. A blue one reminds them of the sky, which prompts a discussion of heaven. In a low-key, conversational tone very much like the musings of young children, the friends wonder, "Do you think there's a heaven up there?...Will we go there, too–both of us?" They decide that even if they don't recognize one another, they could "become friends all over again. Eat jellybeans together, stuff like that." Naive, black-line drawings on a cream-colored background, many small and framed, depict the two friends. One especially poignant illustration shows a tiny rabbit alone on the page with the words, "…what if it's really big and you never bump into anybody?" This unsentimental story may comfort children who see their own questions and concerns mirrored in the ruminations of the two protagonists. A one-on-one reading might spark further discussion.– Marianne Saccardi, Norwalk Community College, CT

From Booklist

Gr. 1-3. Like Steven Salerno's Coco The Carrot on p.1461, this can be read at different levels by different ages. The small book looks deceptively easy. A rabbit and a cat are friends. Drawn simply in ink, the duo decides to meet in the woods. Rabbit will bring jelly beans; Cat, something to drink. They munch on their goodies, and then they start musing on heaven. Does it exist? Will they meet there? Will they have jelly beans? Well, they will because Rabbit will bring them. The book is very pure, very basic. Its quiet pursuit of friendship and discussion of the ultimate reunion may not knock kids' socks off, but many youngsters will think about the friends' dialogue after they close the book.

I have never done a review, but this one moved me to do so. This book has quiet eloquence that tries to answer some lofty questions. I purchased it for an adult friend. The simplicity is actually forceful.

We ordered the book after hearing excerpts from it on NPR, read by Scott Simon and Daniel Pinkwater. We found it touching in its simplicity, and thought-provoking for both adults and children. The schematic drawings reminded us of the illustrations to *Pat the Bunny.* It's a disarmingly artless way of getting parents and their offspring to express and compare their ideas about death, loss, and the permanence of love.

I first heard this read on NPR by Daniel Pinkwater (great author!) and Scott Simon. I immediately bought it for our 7 year old. It is a sweet little story about friendship. The simple line drawings add to the charm. Daniel Pinkwater picked it as a children's story that he loves, and I agree!

This is a delightful, touching book about friendship and the possibility of enduring friendship beyond this life, with such delights as jelly beans and hot chocolate to share. A great book to give a friend, with a little bag of jelly beans.
