What Does Bookroo Think of This Book

A delightfully quirky book that perfectly blends counting, interactivity and notes of sweetness and spunk.

Rudy can’t find his favorite sweater—where could it be? Follow along with Rudy in this clever and off-the-wall story about his quest for the missing sweater that takes him counting back from ten as he follows the pink string and finally discovers what he’s looking for, but with an unexpected twist! The fun-to-follow string, single riddle, and series of interactive elements (including cutouts and flaps) add to the entertainment value of this quirky book that delights from start to finish. The illustrations are jam packed with pizzazz—vivid colors, spunky animals, and charming details—and pair perfectly with the plentiful alliteration and wonderful word choices as readers pass by “prima pigerinas pirouetting” and “ski-dogs slaloming on the stairs.” There are slight references to bathroom humor twice in illustrations, and while perhaps unnecessary, their subtleness adds an additional element of humor without detracting. This book ends on just the right note as (spoiler alert!) Rudy doesn’t mind when he learns that it is his sister who has swiped his sweater—rounding out the story with an unanticipated dose of sweetness and sharing.
