Publishers Weekly Review
Even before Julia was born she was given a red woolen blanket that she used "right from the start." PW said, "Graham's colorful paintings show a humorous, tender regard for a preschooler's inexplicable attachment to a particular object." Ages 2-4. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Kirkus Book Review
Here's a cozy, familiar story done up just right by an Australian with a gift for capturing the universal dramas in the preschool world. Her blanket's color causes amiable strangers to assume that baby Julia is a boy, but her parents know the color is fine. As she grows older, the blanket goes everywhere, diminishing in size (""some went up the vacuum cleaner. . .a sizable piece was lost under the lawnmower"") and also in color, till she goes off to school with a tiny, pink bit--and loses it the first day, "". . .but now that she was growing up she hardly missed it."" Graham's seriocomic pen-and-watercolor illustrations are full of life. Copyright ©Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.
