Booklist - 03/01/2022 In this sequel to Cornbread & Poppy (2022), Poppy convinces her reluctant friend Cornbread to accompany her to the carnival. She longs to ride The Nauseator, but he is leery of thrill rides. They choose the Ferris wheel, only to discover that Poppy is afraid of heights. After sharing treats and winning dubious prizes, they find a peanut and argue over who will eat it. A passing elephant settles the dispute. Divided into three chapters, this beginning-reader book will capture readers’ attention with its strong portrayal of the two main characters, their apparent differences, and their close friendship. The narrative includes intriguing details and conversations, while the illustrations, expressive pen-and-ink drawings with crosshatching and pale watercolor washes, are brimming with imagination, energy, and wit. Just right for young readers. - Copyright 2022 Booklist.
