Reviews

[STAR] "Quiet, emotive illustrations reminiscent of Allen Say's and Brian Selznick's, pull readers onto the streets of Bogotá, where dust announces the arrival of the children who ride in bicycle packs, providing a view of busy streets and the barrio. The book is presented in both English and Spanish versions; Salazar's translation masterfully replicates the distant-yet-confiding tone of Algorta's Spanish original, fully conveying the story and its vivid images. An unmissable tale about loss and reclamation."-Kirkus Reviews (starred),

[STAR] "Poetic...lyrical and moving novel with a melancholic ode to coming of age." -Foreword Reviews (starred),

[STAR] "Algorta's narrative glides with skillful pacing and poetic yet accessible language; Rickenmann's soft, detail-rich illustrations tonally match the refined internal rhythm of the prose."-PW (starred),

"A philosophical read, begging discussion and interpretation."-Pam Muñoz Ryan, New York Times Book Review,

"A memorable and meaningful ride."- The Horn Book,
