Review:

Kirkus Review - Children (01/01/2009):

A starred review.  A winsome prison fable from the Netherlands. Lovey and Dovey, she plump, he thin as a rail, both clad in prison stripes, have & quot;stolen each other & apos;s hearts & quot; & #x2014;but that & apos;s not why they languish in Katakom. They also stole a pair of blue socks, which they now wear, Lovey on her right foot, Dovey on his left. When Lovey complains about the view, Dovey squeezes through the bars, tears a square of & quot;sun and sea & quot; from the landscape and takes it back to their cell to hang on the wall. This is followed by the moon, an apple tree and so on. A wordless subplot depicts a rabbit artist who follows Dovey, painting in his own designs on the blank silhouettes left behind by Dovey & apos;s thefts. Van Hout places her endearing convicts, rendered as line-and-color cartoons, against soft-edged backgrounds, the harsh gray of the cell modulating to bright pastels as the outside is brought in, piece by piece. & quot;But one day, disaster struck: they were released. & quot; The resolution may well bring pause to adults, but children will respond to its daffy logic and celebrate along with the lovers. (Picture book. 5-8)(COPYRIGHT (2009) KIRKUS REVIEWS/NIELSEN BUSINESS MEDIA, INC. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.)



Publishers Weekly (01/19/2009):
Full-bleed illustrations, comic and unabashedly heartwarming, brim with details that encourage a second reading. ... Quirky, playful and altogether inviting.
