Katie O'Neill
7th April 2020

This is one of the sweetest, most wholesome, and beautifully illustrated picture books I have ever set hands and eyes upon. It's no secret that I am a huge Katie O'Neill fan - her Tea Dragon Society books are incredibly important to me and make me feel cozy and seen all at the same time. So, when I learned that she had a picture book coming out this year, I did my best to secure a review copy for myself.

Dewdrop is a little Axolotl, or Mexican Walking Fish, who likes coming up with cheerleader routines, and supporting friends. Each of Dewdrop's friends wants to show off something special of themselves, but feel disheartened about their own abilities. Enter - Dewdrop. And all of the sweetness ensues.

O'Neill's art style is one of bright colours, sweet characters, and often causes lots of smiles to break out on my face. In Dewdrop, which I think would be great for kids of all ages, O'Neill really manages to take the essence of that age-old message - 'Just be yourself' - and cook it down into a lovely little bite of sunshine. I'm not sure I could love it any more, and I think I will revisit it whenever I need a little boost, or a reminder.

10/10 bright happy cheerleading pompoms!

I received an eARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and feelings are my own.
