From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 3–A second book about two best pals, a vole and a groundhog. Illustrated with soft pastel watercolors, the three stories explore friendship and language with gentle humor. In the first tale, the animals are heading to the beach to search for shells, and Riley suggests they make sand-wiches. Next, when Rose goes on a photo safari to hunt for wildflowers, Riley is convinced that Wild Flowers are dangerous and bravely accompanies her, baseball bat at the ready. In the third chapter, Rose explains to Riley that the mocking bird in his backyard is not making fun of him but copying the songs of other birds; she agrees to swap houses because the noise is keeping him awake. Puns and wordplay are introduced to beginning readers through easily understood vocabulary. Rose and Riley maintain their friendship in spite of their misunderstandings. Like James Marshall's George and Martha books (Houghton), Cutler's characters are endearing.–Jane Barrer, Washington Square Village Creative Steps, New York City

K-Gr. 2. Rose, a diminutive vole, and Riley, a robust groundhog, return for more adventures in this follow up to Rose and Riley (2005). Three chapters describe their encounters with nature as they hunt for seashells, wildflowers, and the source of mysterious bird songs. Along the way, they discover that real shells aren't as perfect as they appear in pictures (but they still "smell like the sea" and "feel good to hold"), and Riley learns that wildflowers aren't the fierce, fanged creatures he had imagined when he heard the word "wild." The final story, which finds the friends abruptly trading houses, is a bit convoluted. Still, emerging readers (and listeners) will enjoy the silly puns (sand-wiches at the beach), the exciting discoveries in the natural world, and Yezerski's soft-toned, detailed watercolor-and-ink illustrations, which strengthen the meaning in the short, simple sentences and extend the gentle affection between the friends.
