Editorial Reviews

"Striking illustrations…A warm reassuring story" ? School Library Journal
"A very satisfying symmetry between strong, vivid paintings of the Alberta landscape…and the powerful, forthright story" ? Globe and Mail
"Striking depictions…provide an eyeful for the kids aged four—to—eight… But the tale also offers an emotional tug for grownups, who will delight in the heart—warming tale." ? Windsor Star
