Product description


* "Luminous watercolor, pen and ink illustrations. A palette of fresh greens and yellows heralds springtime, while varying frame sizes and perspectives allow readers to view the realistically rendered toad's cross-country ramble from multiple view.... A stunning gem indeed."
(Kirkus Reviews, starred review)

* "Hobbie clearly delights in painting the arrival of spring, and Gem is its living embodiment." (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

"Hobbie's watercolor with pen-and-ink illustrations are wonderful. The toad is depicted realistically while still imbued with personality and comic expressions, making it an engaging character.... a nearly wordless toad-a-riffic time." (School Library Journal)

"The watercolor and ink pictures themselves are a pure and verdant delight.... a welcome reminder of spring and of the truth that, like all wild animals, 'toads are not pets. They want to be free, like everything does.'" (The Bulletin)

"Gracefully illustrated." (Booklist)

"A shining star in the collection of Holly Hobbie books." (Library Media Connection) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
