"Zolotow's fine, sensitive writing captures the power that dressing up gives Tomás. Young readers know how magical wearing a costume feels, and they'll be amused by the way all the neighbors seem to know Tomás-and warmly greet him, despite his disguise-in this successful reboot." - Publishers Weekly
"In our highly mobile society, many children will identify with Tomás' newcomer feelings of insecurity. Share this classic story one-on-one or in a group for discussion." - School Library Journal
"A must-read for introverted kids, it's a worthy update to the 1963 original.
" - Kirkus
