Reviews

"Booklist"(STARRED review)
"From the proliferation of red throughout this book, we know visually it has strong emotional content, and the cover, with a dispirited boy being gawked at by others, adds to its impact. ... While the text is sparse (and in red), as the teasing builds to a crescendo, the distinctive pencil, charcoal, ink, acrylic, and collage art dramatically shows events spin out of control. ... [A] thoughtful, accessible story.""Publishers Weekly"
"A useful opening into discussions about taking a stand when others do wrong.""Kirkus Reviews"
"The beguiling artwork and pulsing heart at the story's center provide much food-for-thought not to mention an opportunity for children to put themselves into the shoes of the bystander of a cruel act, which surely happens on playgrounds more than adults would care to admit. Thoughtful and beautifully illustrated, it's definitely one to look for.""Children's Illustration"(blog)
"An elegant story about the bravery of everyday life on the playground.""Jen Robinson's Book Page"
""Red"will be validating for young readers in early elementary school. It would make a fine classroom read aloud. ... De Kinder's illustrations are simply gorgeous.""
