Reviews

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, August 15, 2009:
"Smith's elegantly cartoonish brush-and-ink character survives an exhilarating scare involving a kite, a rescue and a newly formed friendship. Heide's prose takes off just when Hyacinth does."

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, August 17, 2009:
"Heide possesses the ability to tell a moralistic tale without a hint of didacticism."

Starred Review, School Library Journal, November 2009:
"Heide's tale bubbles with effervescence, drawing readers into the fantasy with a lively, conversational text."
