On her way to market Jenna makes four new friends. Along with Baby Elephant, there’s Robin, who thinks Jenna has a very silly beak; Fly, who wonders where her hundred eyes are; and Goldfish, who thinks she has very goofy gills. Kirkus has written that “the power and grace in Schwartz’s spare style and language lies in the fact that she never condescends to young readers—she just compares notes.” Here she once again completely and convincingly captures the world of a child in a beautiful and winning picture book about . . . a beautiful girl.
