Reviews

"In her authorial debut, Liwska . . . delivers a prime example of unadulterated storytelling . . . In every word, readers can hear the wise, wry voice of a narrator who knows how to hold a child's attention. The illustrations, a combination of pencil and soft digital color, evoke the simplicity of traditional Chinese art and underscore the intimacy of the book's small format." --Publishers Weekly

"Liwska's tale is generously imbued with a gentle humor that is echoed in her digitally colored pencil drawings. Keeping the roly-poly black-and-white principals just this side of saccharine is no mean feat, but both text and illustrations are up to the challenge as they unfold with wily deliberations. Much like this whimsical tale, the elegant illustrations hold small surprises for perceptive readers to enjoy." --Kirkus Reviews
