Grade 3-6–Jonas writes to a magazine advice columnist, asking why he doesn't look like his mother. With only a drawing as evidence of their differences, Ombi does her best to answer his question. Unfortunately, her answer is not what Jonas is looking for, and the two characters engage in a back-and-forth correspondence that eventually has them using courier pigeons to deliver their letters faster. Only after much soul-searching and consultation with friends does Ombi finally hit upon an answer that meets with the boy's approval. Unique, colorful illustrations throughout this chapter book provide readers with an inside look at the characters' lives and the drawings they exchange. While the book eventually arrives at a happy conclusion, the story includes various tangents that seem somewhat random, and the slow-moving, tangled plot might prove too much to hold the attention of reluctant readers. Purchase this one for larger collections.–Erica Kindrick, University of Washington's iSchool END
