Reviews

"A gorgeous picture book with a message that will resonate with young readers."--School Library Journal

"[Abadia's] naïve compositions convey a winsome bemusement that never mocks . . . . Gentle humor is visual, as when a succession of Pauls peer from a series of mole holes. Compositions, all done on yellow paper, are striking: Mirroring the spread with the enormous sun is an equally mammoth moon that silhouettes Paul's tiny house; in another, Paul stands level with the bottom of the dry well looking up, the bucket resting in futility at the bottom of the aquifer. Charmingly unassuming, rather like Paul himself."--Kirkus Reviews
