“She pushed out her lip and hurried on.”
Irene is a determined person. She’s stubborn at times when fighting for what she believes, and she’s a loving girl.
In this super book, she battles through adversity while having irritation at the presumption of the forces opposing her. Which is both kind of hilarious and admirable — and of course, universal — who hasn’t felt insulted and mad about something keeping us from moving forward? (:
This story is a wonderfully illustrated adventure, with a warm, caring ending and lots of humor mixed in.
(And Go, too, Irene’s awesome mom!)
Thanks to my friend Laura for giving this book to our family as a gift several years ago!
Thanks, William Steig, for the character, illustrations and story ~
