"* Readers of all ages will fall for Herman and Rosie from the start, and Gordon knows how to keep the dramatic and romantic tension just taut enough to keep the pages turning toward their inevitable meeting." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "In bustling New York, anthropomorphic croc Herman and Rosie (a goat?) inhabit parallel lives until they discover they're soul mates . . . Sweetly celebrates artistic bonding in the Big Apple." --Kirkus Reviews "* Not since Petra Mathers's Sophie and Lou (2001) has a picture book, the arts, and romance converged so charmingly." --Booklist, starred review
