An evocative story about two brothers who are growing up (one faster than the other), an unusual summer night and a special tree house that proves childhood is not just a time but also a place.
The layout of this small, oblong picture book is attractive, and the story is pleasant.
... cheerily illustrated ... this picture book captures ... the thrill of brotherly camaraderie ...
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.
Heartfelt and subtle.
The powerful story is made more so by the expressive illustrations of masterful Serbian-Canadian artist Duýan Petricic.
