Reviews

Kirkus Reviews

“Instead of teaching the value of slow and steady progress, this version of the fable says: Stop and look around; there are olive groves and persimmon trees . . . There are animals everywhere: whales and ravens and swimming camels. They’re made up of bold, geometric shapes in gorgeous pastel colors. If the story teaches any lesson at all, it’s this: A short attention span can be a glorious thing, particularly in a place like this.” — Kirkus Reviews

Publishers Weekly

“Working in a milky, muted palette, Goudreau’s crisply defined illustrations successfully capture Israel’s urban bustle, geographic diversity, and leisure attractions, including the friends’ dip in the Dead Sea afterward.” — Publisher’s Weekly
