School Library Journal - 07/01/1989 PreS-Gr 3-- A story about friendship fulfilled. Children meet Ruthie and her imaginary friend Jessica; together this duo share many experiences. Ruthie's parents hope that with the onset of kindergarten Jessica will become a friend of the past. ``There is no Jessica,'' they tell her, again and again. However, Jessica manages to find her way to class and, in a surprising turn of events, Ruthie is able to replace one Jessica for another. Henkes' upbeat story is highlighted by sprightly watercolor and black-pen illustrations that seem to bounce off the pages. Precision writing and a crisp, clean layout combine for a story with a totally satisfying ending and sure-fire child appeal. --J. J.
