It wasn't the white-and-woollies that bolted when they saw him coming, it wasn't the black-and-whites that crashed through the nearest hedge when they saw him coming. Can you guess what it is ...?

PreS-Gr 3-Just what is a Hoodie? It is a gentle creature, "as brightly colored as a berry" with ears that sprout like fungus, and a body as round as the hill under which he lives. This particular creature is in search of the "-one thing that makes a Hoodie truly happy." In his search, he encounters "white-and-woollies" (sheep), "black-and-whites" (cows), and many "tiny-two-legs" (children) kicking a "black and white roly-poly" (ball). Each potential group of friends he approaches, however, runs off in fear. Finally, he smells true Hoodie happiness-another Hoodie! The story rolls along smoothly, building empathy for the lonely, but likable protagonist. The colorful and creative choice of words adds whimsy to this engaging tale. However, when he finds true happiness, readers have little time to celebrate before the new friends begin a 100-year nap. This ending is a bit abrupt and puzzling since there is no earlier hint or explanation about this peculiar behavior. The strong visuals enliven the story. Hess has created a rhythmic flow in the round, rolling hills that echo the roly-poly Hoodie. Even the text occasionally curves over them. Despite the weak ending, the book is a delightful read-aloud. The bright illustrations are large and easily shared with a group.-Carolyn Janssen, Children's Learning Center of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH
