Reviews

Publishers Weekly

“. . .as Clark’s lighthearted pictures prove on page after page, Will and Squill share an instinct for fun that transcends words.” —Publishers Weekly

Kirkus Reviews

“The tongue-twisting text further animates this take on a well-worn theme.” —Kirkus

School Library Journal

“A sweetly told tale about the friendship between a boy named Will and a squirrel named Squill. . . Lively watercolor-and-colored-pencil artwork keeps the message simple and soft. The repetition in the text makes the reading predictable and pleasurable and suitable for young children.” —School Library Journal
