* "Luminous watercolor, pen and ink illustrations. A palette of fresh greens and yellows heralds springtime, while varying frame sizes and perspectives allow readers to view the realistically rendered toad's cross-country ramble from multiple view.... A stunning gem indeed." - Kirkus Reviews, starred review* "Hobbie clearly delights in painting the arrival of spring, and Gem is its living embodiment." - Publishers Weekly, starred reviewHobbie's watercolor with pen-and-ink illustrations are wonderful. The toad is depicted realistically while still imbued with personality and comic expressions, making it an engaging character.... a nearly wordless toad-a-riffic time. - School Library JournalThe watercolor and ink pictures themselves are a pure and verdant delight.... a welcome reminder of spring and of the truth that, like all wild animals, 'toads are not pets. They want to be free, like everything does.' - The BulletinGracefully illustrated. - BooklistA shining star in the collection of Holly Hobbie books. - Library Media Connection
