Product description

Review

Mann, in her second book as both author and illustrator, works with assurance as she puts her jittery ink line and layered washes of color to work in the service of both emotional vulnerability and schoolroom slapstick without missing a beat.... Mann is well on her way to becoming a champion portrayer of those who color outside the lines or march to a different drum.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

There’s considerable potential for classroom conversations here, particularly as students gather to talk about different strengths, and Rose’s story will resonate with many an earnest artist trying to find his or her way onto the board.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)

Mann's ink, gouache, and digital collage illustrations play up the dichotomy between Rose, a pink-cheeked redhead with untied shoes, and Mrs. Benson, an older Caucasian woman with grayish hair in a bun...Readers will certainly empathize with Rose.
—Kirkus Reviews

This warm, generous outing will appeal to children both with and without a polished sense of self.
—Booklist

A unique addition to school-themed picture book collections.
—School Library Journal

Large ink and gouache illustrations are reminiscent of Peter Reynolds’ work with their childlike wavering lines and bright washes, capturing the endearing Rose’s every emotion from despair to triumph...Mann conveys the yearning of a child for her teacher’s approval and the magic that can happen when a wise teacher celebrates the uniqueness of each student.
—School Library Connection
