  About The Book


* "Luminous watercolor, pen and ink illustrations. A palette of fresh greens and yellows heralds springtime, while varying frame sizes and perspectives allow readers to view the realistically rendered toad's cross-country ramble from multiple view.... A stunning gem indeed."
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "Hobbie clearly delights in painting the arrival of spring, and Gem is its living embodiment." Publishers Weekly, starred review
