"Pure, tender, lyrical without being overearnest, and deeply felt." - Kirkus - pointer review

"The reassuring story might comfort a child after the loss of a pet, but this pleasant, imaginary paradise will have a broader appeal to all animal lovers." - SLJ

"The bright acrylic paintings are Rylant's debut as a picture-book painter... they mesh beautifully with the innocence of the text... a book for parent-child sharing." - Booklist
