Book review: Hattie and Hudson, by Chris Van Dusen

Van Dusen, Chris. Hattie and Hudson. Candlewick Press, 2017. $16.99. ISBN 9780763665456. Unpaged. Ages 4-10. P8 Q9.

Hattie McFadden explores a lake and makes a friend with a large mysterious creature she names Hudson. She is determined to convince the town that Hudson is not harmful but friendly. Endpapers are a relaxing pond scene. Illustrations are very detailed and adorable.

Verdict: With the higher vocabulary, it is a great read aloud for discussion for a discussion of friendship or for an advanced reader.
