Editorial Reviews

"A touching portrait of a solitary child with an imaginary friend called Aldo, a rabbit just about her size, who can be counted upon to turn up 'when things get really bad'...Aldo is a quietly comforting figure, tenderly absorbing the feelings suggested in the deftly understated text and the wonderfully expressive illustrations, with their agile line and Turneresque spreads...An unusually perceptive, unsentimental treatment of a familiar theme."
