"A masterpiece."- Kirkus Starred Review
"The beautiful, digitally rendered watercolor illustrations embrace the adventure, the enchantment, and the wisdom of this original narration . . . A tender, accessible tale with detailed, bright artwork that could also function as a gentle approach to the topic of loss."- School Library Journal
