Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Lillie's story begins well, with a genuine sense of what being "best friends" means to children, but ultimately, its emotional content is slight. Jake and Rosie are the same size and like to do the same things, so they decide to be twins, dressing identically except for their shoes. One day Jake knocks on Rosie's door, only to find that no one is home. Roughly half the book is devoted to Jake's desolation over this fact. Then Rosie returns from shopping with her mother--with new shoes just like Jake's. The illustrations are full of affection and capture child-like postures and expressions well, and, because the two friends are not only of different gender but also of different races, a nice lesson is implied. But the belabored focus on what seems a minor crisis-and-resolution makes this easy to put aside after one reading. Ages 4-up.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-- Jake and Rosie are the very best of friends. Inseparable, they share everything from height and hair color to intolerant siblings and the chicken pox. When they decide to be twins, the two must trade left shoes to match perfectly, for Rosie's are black while Jake's are bright red. One day when Rosie isn't home, Jake wanders the neighborhood hoping to find some sign of his friend. His mother tries to console him, but just then Rosie appears with a brand new pair of shoes--just like Jake's. Lillie captures the essence of best friendship in this deceptively simple original tale. Jake's loneliness is genuinely conveyed in spite of the book's easy vocabulary and uncomplicated syntax. Lillie's framed illustrations, in bright watercolors and colored pens, add to the appeal of this little treasure. The two friends, one black and one white, appear properly impish, while Jake on his own looks completely dejected. Small details occasionally protrude from the frames, adding interest to those illustrations; this device is especially effective when Jake, running to greet Rosie, seems ready to burst from the page. Young children will enjoy finding Rosie's cat, who appears on nearly every page. Jake and Rosie will be an excellent choice for beginning readers as well as the read-aloud audience. --Jeanne Marie Clancy, Wolfsohn Memorial Library, King of Prussia, Pa.
