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!
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.
