School Library Journal

“There is much to look at in the detailed, charming illustrations. . . . This is a fun, snowy adventure.”—School Library Journal

Booklist Online

“The simple yet sensible story reinforces that things are not always as they seem and friends can be found in unexpected places. . . . The off-kilter art is a perfect fit for the text and should enlarge the large Beast’s already large fan base.”—Booklist

Kirkus Reviews

“A quirky and snowy tale of affable beasts and friendship in unexpected places….[A] great read-aloud for wintertime story hours and cozy nights at home with the little ones.”―Kirkus Reviews
