The Horn Book Magazine
“Children will interpret the story differently depending on their own life experiences, but the trajectory of moving from a sad and lonely state to one of connection is universal.”—The Horn Book Magazine
“This soft-spoken story can be anything from a simple, lovely, modern fairy tale to a stunning allegory about overcoming fear and how a parent’s depression can affect a child.”—Booklist Online
“A well-executed work about the transformative nature of togetherness.”—Publishers Weekly
“Sensitively shines a metaphorical light onto scary but nonetheless real emotions.”—Kirkus Reviews
