Book Overview

From the author and illustrator of the bestselling Not Quite Narwhal comes a sweet and funny story about remembering where you belong, no matter how far you roam, or what you're wearing when you get there.

Harriet loves costumes. She wears them to the dentist, to the supermarket, and most importantly, to her super-special dress-up birthday party. Her dads have decorated everything for the party and Harriet has her most favorite costume all picked out for the big day. There's just one thing missing--party hats

But when Harriet dons her special penguin errand-running costume and sets out to find the perfect ones, she finds something else instead--real penguins Harriet gets carried away with the flock. She may look like a penguin, but she's not so sure she belongs in the arctic. Can Harriet manage her way back to her dads (and the party hats ) in time for her special day?

   Daughters Love This Book
Great story with fun art. My twin girls gravitate more strongly than others during story time and they like the representation of seeing a character with two fathers just like them. For reviewers who mention that this book has an agenda, Carried Away is in their own false narrative. If you can't handle a story book that mentions her dads just as a side note, go ahead and prep for homeschooling to keep pretending that you can keep your little one under a rock.
   Fantastic children’s book
This is a great children's story and should be part of every child's library.
   Little kid, big imagination
This is a fun story about a little girl with big imagination. It also normalizes a two father family without making a big deal about it, which is totally age appropriate and also reflective of the diversity that makes America great.
   Cute plot, adorable characters!
We have three books by Jessie Sima and love them. It is a cute story full of imagination, like her other books. It is a unique plot, where Harriet loves to dress in costume and is carried away by a pack of penguins because she is dressed in her Penguin costume. I love that Sima emphasizes how important it is to accept and celebrate the differences of others. I also love that she has a non-traditional family in this book - Harriet has two fathers - kids who need to see that.
   My kids played like this too!
The creative and imagination of Gosh is beautiful Harriet! What a pre-school story that is true to the sweet experience. )
   Droll story and beautifully illustrated
My children are too old for me to read it, but I don 't tire of reading it over and over again on my own. It is so funny and there is so much to see in the illustrations. Harriet is a lovable and spirited protagonist.
   Love the inclusiveness
I love '' this book. Much like her other book, this has enchanting artwork that is just whimsical. The story is adorable, but my favorite part is that the little girl has two fathers, and is seemingly biracial. Neither of these things is a plot point, not focused at all. And that is the way it should be.
   An amazingly cute childrens book
One of my very favorite children's books I have ever read. Such a good story with cute illustrations. It is about a little girl who gets carried away literally and figuratively while at the store is trying to find the perfect party hats for her birthday. What will she do in time for the party? Did her fathers notice that she is gone? Luckily, there are some animal friends to help her out. Plus, who doesn 't want to wear costumes all the time? You should also check out Jessie Sima's first book, Not Quite Narwhal, I am a big fan of these first two books and can 't wait to see more from her.
