Editorial Review

The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Cover: Seeing Sky-Blue Pink

“Like the author’s More Than a Name (BCCB 9/95), this is a gentle, unabashedly positive story of a nascent stepfather-stepdaughter relationship. The chapters are short and sweet, suitable for reading aloud or alone; though Sam is a little idealized, he’s awfully endearing, while Maddie’s unease about moving and her more subtextually indicated anxiety about trusting another father figure are respectfully depicted. Youngsters longing for some paternal attention of their own or looking for reassurance as they enter their own step families will find this an affectionate and bolstering chapter book.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
