Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In comic-book-style panels, Polo's newest adventure unfolds. A flying cloud carrying a sleeping rabbit gets stuck in the branches of Polo's tree-home bringing an unexpected visit from a feisty, practical-joke-loving new friend. A light-hearted and sweet tale about making new friends and keeping them--even when they have to fly away.

Review:

"In this outing, fans will discover a mellower side to the can-do canine that debuted in The Adventures of Polo. French artist Faller creates another inventive, wordless story revealed in panel art, although more modest in scope than its predecessors. (And in literal size, too, with a smaller trim size and less than half the length.) On his small island, Polo, a cafe au lait — hued pup, lives a quiet life, watering tidy rows of tomato plants and dining alone on the fish he catches. That is, until Lily, a spunky rabbit who cruises around on a cloud, plops into his tree house bedroom. (Aficionados may recall her cameo in Polo: The Runaway Book.) Faller's jewel-toned panels are wry and expressive: flapping ears and a lifted eyebrow convey Polo's huffy response to a playful squirt of the garden hose. While still quirky — — Polo answers Lily's call on a telephone ringing in a left-behind suitcase — — this title shifts from the surreal slapstick of its predecessors to the gently offbeat unfolding of a friendship. Published simultaneously with Polo and the Magic Flute. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
