Sweetly illustrated, this book reminds me of the simple, friendly stories of my own childhood. There’s nothing sly or wink-wink about it, nothing trying to also appeal to the grownups. These stories are about friendship and childhood, with no big “message” involved.

Possible Objectionable Material:
A child alone in the woods.

Who Might Like This Book:
Children who like simple, non-threatening, non-preachy stories with simple illustrations. This is definitely for the pre-K to grade 1 or 2 crowd; I'd disregard that suggested 8-12 age range.

Thank you, NetGalley, for the ARC. This book also reviewed at http://biblioquacious.blogspot.com/2017/08/a-panoply-of-picturebooks.html. ( )

Lucy and her woodland friends enjoy a number of adventures together in this picture-book anthology containing three stories. Sharing their snacks while sitting on a tree branch together, throwing a surprise birthday party by means of a treasure hunt, and hatching a trio of eggs, these are the activities that Lucy and company engage in...

Originally published in Canada as Lucy et cie, this sweet picture-book pairs a gentle tale of friendship and good times with charming artwork. I cannot say that it had the same emotional depth as The Lion and the Bird, which was my introduction to French-Canadian author/artist Marianne Dubuc's work, and which I found immensely moving, but Lucy & Company does have appeal, especially as a lighthearted summer story for the picture-book set.

Lucy & Company is a very cute picture book for little kids. It consists of three very short stories about Lucy and her friends' adventures, such as going on a treasure hunt, surprising a friend with a birthday party, watching chicks hatch, and sharing a snack among friends. The stories are simple and uncomplicated in their plot, and give kind of comfort in their resolution, making them ideal for the age range. As in all Dubuc's works, the art is beautiful and the best part or the book.

I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
