    1. This is about my shortcomings as a reader then about the shortcomings of the book The plot concerns two stuffed animals and a balloon who start off in a paper boat to find the end of the world The problem with me I can t get past that fact that a lot of the reflections of the text from the paper boat are not correct The text doesn t match, or it doesn t line up with the apparent light source I spent a lot of time noticing this and being distracted from the story by it The illustrations are slop [...]

    2. Inspiration comes in a variety of different forms though family is probably best source One author might write a picture book and make all the monsters in it the relatives they knew growing up Another might write a tale based on an amusing catchphrase picked up by her husband In the case of Hopper and Wilson, author Maria van Lieshout found inspiration when her father and brother found home Apparently the two went on a sea voyage once and proceeded to get lost The story has a happy ending since [...]

    3. Good friends Hopper the elephant and Wilson the mouse realize that there is no place like home Like many of us, though, they have to go away first before appreciating what they have When Hopper dreams of being able to touch the moon, Wilson wishes for limitless lemonade When a fierce ocean storm separates the two on their voyage, Wilson asks everyone he encounters if they ve seen Hopper Once they re reunited, they need precisely what matters The illustrations, created with watercolors, collage, [...]

    7. This book is about an elephant and mouse that set sail in a newspaper sailor hat boat to see the end of the world Hopper gets lost in a storm and Wilson is afraid he s lost at sea The two become reunited and sail around the world ending up at the same place they started I kept mixing up the names Hopper is the elephant and Wilson is the mouse I always want to reverse them Kids kept laughing at my mix up Kindergarten students made a simple sailor hat before I read the story I set out a one page s [...]

    8. This is a sweet tale about two friends setting out in a small boat, going on an exciting adventure to find the end of the world The narrative is short and dramatic and the illustrations are colorful The ending is somewhat philosophical and the whole story has a metaphysical feel to it Probably best suited for younger children, but we enjoyed reading it together I have to mention that as the story progresses and we see Wilson out on the ocean, I couldn t help but think of Wilson from the movie Ca [...]

    9.

    15. Interesting texture to the illustrations Van Lieshout manages to pack a lot of drama and emotion into a little book I wasn t sure at first which was Hopper and which Wilson I missed the subtle clue with the first read It wasn t exactly necessary to understanding the story but it bothered me a little.

    16. Reminds me ofSam and Dave Dig a Hole, but with stuffed animals as the main characters They basically go on an adventure sailing in a boat made of a folded newspaper page and after some good and bad, make it back home.

    17. Hopper and Wilson take to a paper boat to find the end of the world They almost lose each other in a storm, but in a happy ending, find each other and home again The way Hopper and Wilson toy friends related to each other reminded me very much of Winnie the Pooh and Piglet Sweet and imaginative.

    19. Very cute Two friends potentially stuffed decide to sail to the other side of the world They end up losing each other and finding each other again, only to arrive back home where they started Pretty sure they did a circle, just saying Lemonade.

    20. I enjoyed this book because it was about two friends finding each other after being lost without one another I enjoyed how this book was about an elephant and a mouse, two animals you do not think would be friends.

    21. This very cute board book was fun to read to my infant and is probably best for ages 0 3 You could have a few activities to go with the book for your older baby, like making and sailing a paper boat after reading the story together.

    23. Two friends who seek out to find the end of the world Who knows there might be endless amounts of lemonade and a ladder to the moon The possibilities are endless Sweet story, with danger, friendship, adventure and fun.

    24. These are sweet friends who journey to find home after an adventure that initially parts them Their concern for each other, and the charming details of their friendship are truly winning I love that their boat is paper, they share a cactus and love lemonade Adorable.

    25. This is the complete package great story and wonderful artwork The watercolors are full of texture, both from the paper and from brush style Lots of movement on page spreads and a wonderful use of negative space Love it

    26. So this book is actually pretty cute, but as a board book the text is rather long doesn t really fit with the attention span of my five month old
