9780399240294: La La Rose (Booklist Editor's Choice. Books for Youth (Awards))

La La Rose is a pink rabbit.  She and her little girl, Clementine, are absolutely inseparable.  Until, one day in Luxembourg Gardens, the unthinkable happens: La La Rose gets left behind.  Boys toss her in the trashcan, a jogger runs with her, a dog drags her from the fountain...La La Rose keeps getting farther and farther from her Clementine!  Will she ever be safe in her arms again?

In this touching story, Satomi Ichikawa seamlessly captures both the beauty of Luxembourg Gardens in Paris and the very special love between a child and her favorite doll.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* PreS. "I am La La Rose, the pink stuffed rabbit. I am the inseparable friend of Clementine." So begins La La's adventure in the Luxembourg Gardens in Paris, where Grandma has taken Clementine and her brother to play. The playground, the carousel--everything is fun. But when it's time to see the ponies, La La falls out of Clementine's backpack, and, oh, what tragedies befall her! She is thrown around by a soccer team, falls down some stairs, and lands in a pond before being picked up by a little girl who understands the feelings of the lost--and the found--and determinedly brings doll and owner together in a sweet reunion. The story itself is straightforward, and in the hands of a lesser artist might not have been special. But Ichikawa's ink-and-watercolor paintings are a wonderful mix of action and thoughtfulness, sweetness and subtlety that extend the story and give it life past a first reading. In the opening spreads, which show Clementine playing on the jungle gym and the merry-go-round, La La Rose is barely visible in the midst of all the fun. But once she is lost, she is right in the center of the pictures, her face remarkably emotional for a stuffed animal. A very satisfying story that also captures the magic and excitement of a special place. Ilene Cooper
