Reviews

"...This reissue’s gentle humor and whimsical illustrations have lasting appeal." 

-School Library Journal 

 

"The text is all dialogue, the illustrations are sketchlike, and both are spot-on with their child logic and humor." 

-Horn Book 

 

"Comes very near to being a minor masterpiece, so sure is its understanding of the ingredients which make up life's more humble, quiet desperation. It is a child's book but the eight truths it catalogues are universal in their implications." The New York Times
