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)

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 the middle child with 10 older and 10 younger brothers and sisters. She thinks that their family fun time is the best thing in the world. When her father brings home a television set as a surprise, Chloe is very disappointed. Sitting around is not her or her baby sister, Bridget's, idea of fun at all. Within the discarded television box they find bubble wrap and start popping away. Soon, the other brothers and sisters join in on playing with the bubble wrap until the popping is so loud that their mother and father can no longer hear the television and sends them all to bed.

The message that television time should not take over the good old family fun time is clear in this story and I cannot agree more. I personally think sitting down and watching a good family movie from time to time is fine but sometimes it becomes an addiction that is hard to reverse. Making time for other physical activities and things that make you think and use your brain like puzzles and board games are always more fun and interactive.

I love the illustrations in this book, from the detailed tree branches on the inside cover to the simple patterns on each bunny's clothes. The pastel colors mixed with off-white pages create a warm and inviting effect. The bunnies aren't very realistic but they are still very cute.

My granddaughter loves the story of all the many rabbits. She is very maternal with hr dolls, stuffed toys, etc., therefore loved all the little "Children" in the large family. I selected the book because of the imaginative play inside of the large box for the new TV the family received. My 2 grandchildren have spent weeks drawing, cutting out holes, and playing inside a huge box that held an outdoor basketball goal for use in the pool.

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.

The entire family enjoyed reading the book together.

It was a present for the end of the school year, and will give her many happy times all summer.

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!!

I love this book so much. The illustrations are just divine. Its a very simple story with a great message. 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! I checked out the authors other books after discovering this one, and "Henry in Love" is just as good. I hope to see more of Henry and Chloe as well. A must have classic for anyone's collection.

I do not understand why people are leaving 4-5 stars? the message in this short book is horrible. It's about a family who used to have family time until they bought a tv. The dad actually gets upset with the children for interrupting his show at the end and sends them to bed. how sad and awful.
