Horn Book Guide Review 'o the Day

From a forthcoming review of A Promise Is a Promise, by Krister and Eve Tharlet:

When Bruno, a blanket-toting marmot, awakens from hibernation, he befriends a dandelion. After days of playing together, the dandelion asks Bruno to blow on her, promising that "everything will be just fine."

I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried.

Gave me a good giggle this morning. Thanks, I needed that one!

Sigh...that's for all of those, yet to be published or not being published, who have amazing stories to tell.

I'd like to know how the hell you'd play with a dandelion.

Dandelion: I know! Let's play Photosynthesis!

Wouldn't a marmot just eat the dandelion? After first destroying the garden, of course.

Not a blanket-toting marmot...

And I bet the dandelion plays a mean game of freeze tag.

At least it's not a gun-toting marmot, like the locals.

(But 'round here, we call 'em groundhogs.)
