"It's a gorgeous vision of summer in the city, as well as of small steps with big payoffs." --Publishers Weekly, starred review on Little Elliot, Big Fun

"A bravura celebration of the healing effects of acceptance and friendship." --Booklist, starred review, on Little Elliot, Big Fun

"Young children will easily relate to Elliot's experience of loneliness and his relief at inclusion, both convincingly captured in this elegant tale." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on Little Elliot, Big Family

"Curato fleshes out Little Elliot's personality in this installment - there are glimmers of a character with real depth beneath his cutie-pie visage - while continuing to come up with wonderful, Hopperesque images of a bygone New York." --Publishers Weekly, starred review, on Little Elliot, Big Family

"* [Curato is] a terrific emerging talent, with gorgeously rendered images that bring to mind the moodiness of Chris Van Allsburg and the sweetness of William Joyce." --Publishers Weekly, starred review on Little Elliot, Big City

"* Curato, a debut author and illustrator, tucks several gentle messages into one simple story that's perfect for the age group. . . . Happily, expect to see more of him." --Booklist, starred review on Little Elliot, Big City
