Editorial Reviews

Fans will hope for much more from this endearing fellow

Publishers Weekly

[P]hotographs and simple a more than adequate job of taking young readers into Daniel's world, a world that isn't terribly dissimilar to their own, perhaps just a well-explained and better documented one ... Informative and interesting visual and written descriptions will intrigue readers.
