Editorial Reviews

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

— School Library Journal

... 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

Heartfelt and subtle.

— Booklist

The powerful story is made more so by the expressive illustrations of masterful Serbian-Canadian artist Du├Żan Petricic.
