Reviews and Awards

A Bank Street College Center for Children's Literature Best Book of the Year

"Zoe is full of spitfire and dash... How are young readers to resist?" - Kirkus Reviews

"Charming pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations reveal to readers both the lush green jungle teeming with wild animals and bright flowers, as well as the impressive playground just ripe for imagining. Wonderful vocabulary introduces such words as 'glimpses,' 'stealthy,' 'relentless,' 'ingenuity,' and 'unfathomable.' Children will enjoy watching Zoe and Addie play their game while also searching for the Addiebeast's polka-dotted 'hide,' thus allowing them to take part in the pursuit." - School Library Journal

"Coming through a familiar childhood trial with grace and a strong sense of self, Zoe makes the most of her imagination, her relationships, and her precious time. The buoyant ink-and-watercolor illustrations portray the outing with energy and the characters with affection. This endearing picture book is a lively addition to the Zoe series." - Booklist
