“Fosberry’s story is delightful. “
“Isabella gives new meaning to jumping into a book. The pages are designed as a kind of puzzle, challenging young readers to name each book Isabella has found. It’s made for a read-aloud with grown-ups, who will appreciate the two pages of background on the six classic books in which Isabella immerses herself.”
“The third book in a richly rewarding series . . . Fosberry has found a wonderful way to engage a whole new audience while making our trip down the rabbit hole all the more meaningful.”
