Harnett's illustrations are colorful and charming. --Kirkus Reviews [...] city life hums with beauty and possibility in Harnett's artwork, giving readers reasons to smile. --Publisher's Weekly Ivy and the Lonely Raincloud presents a unique look at a friendship blossomed from an unlikely source. [...] Harnett enlivens the scene with a variety of well-constructed illustrations that are action oriented and energetic. There is depth of expression and creative perspective. Great attention is paid to patterns, details and the subtle inclusion of other children, animals and toys. [...] Another nicely done feature is the way in which Harnett incorporates diversity. While Ivy has a dark complexion, other people in the town are clearly from a variety of ethnicities. Such diversity will serve to make Ivy and the Lonely Raincloud appeal to children from all walks of life. --New York Journal of Books
