“Picture books about unlikely friends do not get much sweeter than this story…” —Booklist
“The time-honored odd-couple pairing of predator and prey does a star turn in this sweet tale of friendship.Foreman’s singular watercolors give his images an inner glow that shines brightest in the artist’s glorious two-page panoramas. In terms of the characters themselves, readers will have little difficulty believing in their friendship, food chain or no food chain. More to the point, here’s a nice lesson of finding the wide world close to home.
A warm, welcoming book with a taste and tone of its very own." —Kirkus Reviews
School Library Journal
“Friendship takes precedence over adventure in this story…. Large watercolor images reflect the gentle mood.” —School Library Journal
