Reviews

"Edwards' story radiates warmth and coziness and is a delight to share." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"
This heartwarming offering achieves its emotional impact through the loving actions of its main characters and makes for a great read-aloud whether shared one-on-one or with a group in storytime." -- School Library Journal, starred review

"It's a supremely lovely story, a tribute to the rewards of grit and selflessness; Edwards's (Max Makes a Cake) unadorned, emotionally genuine text is as winning as the pictures." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A lovely book to share and discuss, and the hat pattern is included!"-- Kirkus Reviews, starred review
