"A quiet, comforting tale of finding where you belong." --Booklist
"A wonderfully creative story of resilience and friendship." --School Library Journal, starred review
"Hypnotic artwork and storytelling invite children to linger in the wild woods of worry and emerge intact, enriched, and utterly invigorated by this complex, contemporary fairy tale." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"Erin Stead uses faded grays for the alien forest and warm, quiet color for the story's living souls. What stands out is the Steads' (Bear Has a Story to Tell) ability to evoke the wordless intimacy and companionship that every child needs-and will make for themselves, if necessary." --Publishers Weekly, starred review
