Editorial Reviews

The fog leaves me agog." - Lemony Snicket "The story unfolds entirely through the characters' tidy dialogue and musings, which appear in speech and thought balloons. . . the action moves forward in rectangular comics-style panels, and the bright teals and oranges of his palette help make the friends' seaside home feel inviting and picturesque." - Publishers Weekly "The simple story with clear, bright art demonstrates that friends do not always need to agree and bobs along as buoyantly as sun across the water? A blithe and breezy charmer." - Kirkus "The vibrant, graphic illustrations in comics-style panels and text aimed skillfully at newly emergent readers combine to tell a heartwarming story of how unexpected courage, kindness, and compromise can strengthen friendships. New readers will look forward to more adventures from Petal and Poppy." -Booklist "
