Somehow, I missed this in the Cybils finalists. Now that I've seen it...I want it. Although I often see picturebooks I'll read again and again in storytime, there aren't many that are personal keepers, but this one - definitely. The lovely swooshy watercolors, splashy colors, dreamy underwater bits...they're just perfect. And the writing! It's a lovely story of friendship and letting go.
Anyhow, there are probably other reviewers out there who have reviewed this better because they were not feeling all gooey-eyed at the moment, but I hafta go so I can't look for them right now (-:)
