My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Milo and Georgie have to move to a new town, and Milo is so upset that he won’t go outside to explore their new neighborhood. But Georgie loves their new house, and wants to explore. Milo ties a string of yarn around her and lets her loose on the neighborhood, but when he tugs on the yarn twice, Georgie is supposed to come home. One day, Milo tugs on the yarn, but Georgie doesn’t respond! Milo has to go looking for his sister, and discovers a whole neighborhood full of new friends!
I loved this sweet story about moving and being upset about leaving behind all the things you loved about your old home. Milo is really determined to hate everything new that comes along, and I love how stubborn he is in the beginning! It’s hilarious!
The contrast between Milo’s bad attitude and Georgie’s love for every new adventure is brilliant! Georgie is excited and happy about everything, and she comes home each day with stories of her neighborhood discoveries.
I moved around a lot as a child, and I was a mixture of Milo and Georgie. I loved each new adventure, but also felt sad to leave behind the familiarity of the old place.
This would be a wonderful book to read to children who are moving to a new location.
The artwork is delightfully whimsical and brightly colored!
