Heartfelt and subtle.—Booklist


... cheerily illustrated ... this picture book captures ... the thrill of brotherly camaraderie ...—The Wall Street Journal


Larsen's text is full of delights, simple sensory details that capture a mood. ... To these crisply written words, Petricic brings his own rich dimension of narrative and character.—Quill & Quire, Starred Review


The layout of this small, oblong picture book is attractive, and the story is pleasant.—School Library Journal


The powerful story is made more so by the expressive illustrations of masterful Serbian-Canadian artist Duýan Petricic.—Quill & Quire
