Product description

Review

Young children will be riveted by this masterfully paced, puppy-love drama, played out with an array of quirky animals in contemporary comic style. The measure of individuality is each character's ability to keep a secret. There is the gossipmonger, the one who does not care, the one who tries to keep a secret, and the one who doesn't... A delightful, surefire conversation starter on the do's and don'ts of secrets among friends.--School Library Journal (starred review)Freeman's brisk storytelling and comically expressive cast of anthropomorphic animals make an all-too-familiar situation feel fresh...The stagelike composition and the characters' penchant for theatrical gestures keep the mood as light as a French farce while still conveying sympathy for Molly--and empathy for the tough task of being a secret keeper.--Publishers Weekly (starred review) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
