Reviews

"When I was a kid, my best friend was Josh Funk. Now he's becoming a friend to a whole new generation."--B.J. Novak, author of The New York Times bestseller The Book With No Pictures

* "Montalvo's visual irony skillfully paces alongside Funk's gamboling rhymes, rendering readers' investigation of each spread just as rewarding as the page turns. A playful celebration of difference (and poetry)."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Perfect for classes undertaking a pen-pal unit, but general picture book collections can benefit from this gentle reminder that kids who look different can still get along."--School Library Journal
