From School Library Journal:

Starred Review. PreSchool-Grade 2–Keller takes on the subject of name calling in a gentle, simple, and compassionate manner. Rose the fox uses her exceptional sense of smell to find things that others lose, such as a lipstick that smells red, a baseball that smells new, and the babys bottle that smells like milk. Because of her abilities, she is dubbed Nosy Rosie, a name that everyone thinks is funny except Rose. Finally, when family members beg her to find their missing items, she shouts, I dont hear you because thats not my name. The heartfelt dialogue poignantly conveys the little foxs hurt feelings and reads aloud perfectly. The colorful mixture of robust watercolors and simple black lines touchingly reveals each characters attitude through expressive body movement rather than facial features. Each spread has one big illustration that sometimes fills the entire page and an opposite page that displays smaller vignettes on a clean white background. The large text is easy to see even on a colored background, and the satisfying conclusion is one that children will cheer. A great choice to start a discussion of this issue, as well as a sweet story.–Kirsten Cutler, Sonoma County Library, CA
