    * "Understated illustrations made of textured papers in muted tones keep the focus on the developing friendship and the slapstick humor. Here's hoping for a return of Bob and Flo...and for every preschooler to find a friendship like theirs." 

    Kirkus, starred review 

     

    "Large simple shapes and uncluttered pastel backgrounds will appeal to very young children. Youngsters will also enjoy spotting the pink pail right in front of Flo's eyes." 

    —Booklist 

     

    "Ashdown's simply composed mixed-media illustrations featuring large, solid-shaped penguin characters are well suited for group sharing, and the collage-like elements add enough detail to hold young viewers' attention." 

    —Horn Book Magazine 

     

    "The spare, deadpan narration follows Flo’s ensuing search as she nonchalantly passes by bucket-shaped sand castles and casually notices “there was something different” about Bob’s appearance. Ashdown’s charming mixed-media illustrations show Bob’s humorous transformations of the bucket into a hat, a stepping stool, and a drum."
