"The story's sense and wit are most fully expressed in the text, but the character's actions and emotions are most memorably portrayed in the artwork... A fine picture book with a fierce, bold, and (deep down) compassionate heroine."--Booklist"Emotionally true from cover to cover."--Kirkus Reviews, STARRED review "Birdsall's crisp and delightful first picture book....believable characters, a tightly constructed story line, and a nod to past children's literature."--Publishers Weekly
