Betsy Partridge is the author of Oranges on Golden Mountain and the award-winning Restless Spirit: The Life & Work of Dorothea Lange. Martha Weston is the illustrator of numerous books for children, including Did You See What I Saw? by Kay Winters.From Booklist:
Gr. 1-2. In this Dutton Easy Reader, little mouse Bo wants to surprise his best friend, Annie, with something special. What should it be? He decides to make her a cake, but instead of giving it to her right away, he tries to build suspense, dropping clues throughout their day of skating. When he finally delivers the cake, he accidentally drops it into the snow. Plucky Annie doesn't mind a bit. The two friends finish off the treat, and, cold and wet, return to Annie's house, where Bo jumps, fully clothed, into a bathtub of hot water. The story drifts, losing momentum toward the odd ending. Nevertheless, it touches on the awkwardness that sometimes comes with gestures of affection between friends, and the simple, descriptive language and short sentences are just right for beginning readers. Weston's bright, action-packed artwork makes endearing characters of the story's two rodent stars. Gillian Engberg
