Editorial Review

"It is rare that one deals this directly, in children's novels, with a problem that, nevertheless, is the lot of many children. Gilles Gauthier does it with sincerity, a delicate touch and emotion that will instantly tug at your heart. Absolutely a must read!"

— Journal de Montreal
