Reviews

"One summer morning when his parents aren't about, frog Gorky sets up a laboratory in the kitchen and concocts a potion...His wondrous flight is described in language that bubbles with magical phrases, and the illustrations bloom with Steig's luminous art." --Starred, School Library Journal

"Orbiting Steig's world with Gorky is an experience I recommend to everyone." --The New Yorker
