Reviews

"With elegant simplicity and generously colored and patterned pages, this picture book from Paschkis shows how a family quilt can connect children to both the past and the present."
"Drawing on the vibrant colors, tableau compositions, and cheery graphic motifs of pan-European folk art, illustrator Paschkis (Pablo Neruda: Poet of the People), making her debut as an author, elevates her story beyond a familiar tale of displacement anxiety."
"The folkloric quilt that graces the endpapers and continues throughout is as charming and warm as a quilt can be. The ink and gouache illustrations are quintessentially Paschkis."
"Vivid artwork, a lively, endearing heroine and a warm, loving look at a pivotal experience give this one classic potential."
