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.
