Synopsis: Jake is upset not to find his best friend Rosie at home, but Rosie soon returns and shows Jake a nice surprise.
From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-- Jake and Rosie are the very best of friends. Inseparable, they share everything from height and hair color to intolerant siblings and the chicken pox. When they decide to be twins, the two must trade left shoes to match perfectly, for Rosie's are black while Jake's are bright red. One day when Rosie isn't home, Jake wanders the neighborhood hoping to find some sign of his friend. His mother tries to console him, but just then Rosie appears with a brand new pair of shoes--just like Jake's. Lillie captures the essence of best friendship in this deceptively simple original tale. Jake's loneliness is genuinely conveyed in spite of the book's easy vocabulary and uncomplicated syntax. Lillie's framed illustrations, in bright watercolors and colored pens, add to the appeal of this little treasure. The two friends, one black and one white, appear properly impish, while Jake on his own looks completely dejected. Small details occasionally protrude from the frames, adding interest to those illustrations; this device is especially effective when Jake, running to greet Rosie, seems ready to burst from the page. Young children will enjoy finding Rosie's cat, who appears on nearly every page. Jake and Rosie will be an excellent choice for beginning readers as well as the read-aloud audience. --Jeanne Marie Clancy, Wolfsohn Memorial Library, King of Prussia, Pa.
