Reviews

"Curato's lush illustrations revel in the calm of rural expanses ("The country is even bigger than the city!" Elliot exclaims), creating a sense of palpable relief as the friends relax." --Publishers Weekly, starred review, on Little Elliot, Fall Friends

"the resulting artwork offers a wondrous presentation of the russets, greens, and golds of trees on rolling hills, very like Grant Wood's idyllic farm landscape paintings. This charming celebration of friendship (and fall) deepens with each rereading." --Booklist on Little Elliot, Fall Friends

"Making excellent use of light and shadow, the painterly illustrations are sumptuous, dominated by oranges, reds, and golds. Curato brings to life the fall countryside just as effectively as he does the urban setting." --School Library Journal on Little Elliot, Fall Friends

"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

"A tiny, spotted elephant tackles the challenges of city life. . . . The simple story is told in 17 short sentences that allow Curato's magnificent 1940s-style illustrations to carry the tale." --School Library Journal on Little Elliot, Big City
