"Knuffle Bunny is reimagined with dialogue and a dash of suspense. . . . Trimmer's simple story of a universal experience will captivate young readers and have them rooting for Teddy's reunion with Bren-Da. Teddy's problem-solving abilities also serve as a useful model. Valentine's illustrations bring the story to life with creative depictions of orange-haired, pink-skinned Bren-Da's style and humorous portrayals of Teddy's and his mother's actions. . . . The story gently pushes gender norms by showing a doll as Teddy's favorite toy and Teddy's mom as nothing short of a superheroine as she tries to get Bren-Da back. A heartwarming story that uses an everyday occurrence to push the envelope on many fronts."--Kirkus Reviews "11/15/17 "
