  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2005 March #2
    Gr. 4-6. The two middle-school best friends who appeared in Fearless Fernie (2001) are together again, but this time they leave behind their backyards and their school and take off to tour the world. Whether the boys are on safari in Kenya, on the beach in Hawaii, sharing a salami sausage snack in Sicily, or craving Mexican food in Taiwan, the simple, mischievous poems and black-and-white cartoonlike art show that the imaginary global adventures are never really far from home. It's the friendship story, both silly and affectionate, that is the real subject. The most moving poem, "The Road Not Taken . . . in Peru," a takeoff on Robert Frost's classic, finds the friends choosing separate paths, then retracing steps ("He went down mine, me his") to find themselves wiser for traveling both roads.
