Reviews

"Gilmore's breezy tone keeps scariness at bay... and her illustrations are at once dreamy and believable. The conceit of a primary school-aged child who is already a seasoned medical professional provides charm from the outset, and Little Doctor's bravery comes from wisdom and kindness."--Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW
"A young girl must figure out a way to help a sharp-toothed and fearsome creature many times her size... A rousing, toothy adventure."--Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW
"An enthralling demonstration of kindness in action, helmed by a confident, brown-skinned girl in a doctor's coat."--Booklist, STARRED REVIEW
"With its softly detailed, virtuoso art and a perfectly wrought story full of heart and respect for the imaginative rules of children's play, this debut shines."--The New York Times
