Reviews

"Hatke fills the comic-book-style, picture-book-sized pages with lovely watercolor illustrations of a menagerie of creatures . . . Imaginative tots will love Julia's resourcefulness and hospitality." --Booklist

"From the author of Zita the Spacegirl comes an enjoyable blend of picture book, graphic novel, and fairy tale prose . . . The gentle flow of the story will draw in readers, and Julia's problem-solving will have them giggling as they nod along at her choices. A wonderful addition." --School Library Journal

"Hatke steps from graphic novels (Zita the Spacegirl) to the picture-book format with aplomb, blending tropes from both worlds for a sweetly weird domestic adventure. Readers will want to move right in." --Kirkus Reviews

"In his first picture book, Hatke (the Zita the Spacegirl series) crafts a funny, fantastical scenario with a girl hero in charge." --Publisher's Weekly
