Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2–The lovable pup from A Ball for Daisy (Random, 2011) is back. Nearly wordless like its predecessor, this evocative story depicts another misadventure in the park. While playing fetch with her human and her new blue ball, Daisy sees a squirrel. In typical doggie fashion, she merrily chases the critter into the woods and gets lost. Frantic, she howls and looks for the child while the youngster searches for her. The two find each other in the end, though Daisy is still eyeing that pesky squirrel. A clever mix of layouts–mostly full spreads, occasionally changing to two to eight panels across two pages–propels the action. As in his previous work, Raschka masterfully imbues his ink, watercolor, and gouache illustrations with a stunning range of emotions. With a few brushstrokes, he captures the excitement in the lolling canine tongue, the alarm and anguish of being lost, the relief and joy of the cozy reunion. Whether a cautionary tale or one familiar to any pet owner, this book is a must for Daisy fans everywhere.–Yelena Alekseyeva-Popova, formerly at Chappaqua Library, NYα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

Dogs this lovable don’t stay away for long. Daisy, fresh off of her Caldecott (though, happily, it hasn’t gone to her head), is back chasing balls with doggy abandon. Great fun—but wouldn’t chasing that squirrel be even funner? Raschka’s thick, almost abstract illustrations really come to life once Daisy is lost in the forest. Soakings of watercolor approximate the sun as it is colored and diffused through branches and leaves, while finer strokes in the foreground communicate thorns and brush. It’s the big, scary woods as seen by a child (or a dog), and when Raschka pulls back for a bird’s-eye view of little Daisy isolated among the all-encompassing green, it’s emotive rather than realistic, and all the stronger for it. As before, the alternation between full-bleed pages and smaller panels is effective, with each approach bringing with it a different emotional punch. The story? Well, there isn’t one, but kids will like it that way. The tongue-flapping joy of the found dog makes plenty of good, heartfelt sense all on its own. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: That tag around Daisy’s neck is a Caldecott Medal, which means this is one dog every library is going to want to bring home. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Daniel Kraus

By J.Prather TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 15, 2013
Format: Kindle Edition
I fell in love with Chis Raschka's dog Daisy way before those stuffy Caldecott people decided to award their medal to the first Daisy book, A Ball for Daisy. Raschka's illustrations are always unique and I am constantly amazed at the level of expressiveness and emotion he is able to bring forth with what seems to be just the smallest turn of the brush. I think Daisy is his finest creation, maybe because I love dogs, and maybe it's just because Daisy's stories are simple but true. We've all lost a beloved toy, and now we can all relate to Daisy's next adventure, because I think we've probably all been lost.

Wordless books are never an easy sell for me. I'm a woman who admires words and I rely on them to tell stories with flair and nuance. There are very few words in this book. We start out with an energetic "Go get it, Daisy!" and end up with a few cries of "Daisy!" and one long mournful howl. That's okay for me though, since the story is straightforward and the author tells it well. It's been a while since I paged through the first Daisy book, but I think this one has fewer multi-panel spreads. The story is told with glorious full page and sometimes two page spreads illustrated with Raschka's energy filled watercolor illustrations. Even the very youngest child will be able to follow this story with ease as Daisy finds herself separated from her owner. Parents and older readers will enjoy the interactions between Daisy and the squirrel she chases into the forest. Having witnessed my own dog pursue many a squirrel, I believe I recognize the smirk that squirrel is wearing.

Bright, colorful and fun filled; Daisy Gets Lost is an enthusiastic recommend for any picture book fan. Take the time to note and appreciate the fear on Daisy's face when she discovers she's lost, and the joy upon her reunion with her owner. Raschka always proves to me that you don't need a lot of words to tell a story with style.

Chris Raschka's illustrations are unique, simple, and beautiful. There are only eight words in this picture book, but I could understand everything that was happening with the dog names Daisy, and the girl's emotions just looking at each illustration. Chris Raschka has done a great job.

This is a great series. The watercolors are absolutely priceless. Since it is wordless, my granddaughter can make up the story and be as creative as she likes!

Book is ok for kids. I had seen it got good reviews as a kids book and has good pictures, but I was expecting more words.
