The simple illustrations are picked out with bright accents in scarlet and soft greens. Charlotte is a cheerful little girl, who makes the best of things and struggles on despite her difficulties with her large boulder of a pet. There are jokes that both adults and children will appreciate, like Charlotte lying on a coach and telling her rock her troubles, or being superheroes together, both with matching green masks.
Verdict: This is a delightful addition to the "odd pets" genre. Not a necessary purchase perhaps, but certainly worth adding and will be a fun addition in storytimes as well.
