"As perfectly, honestly childlike in its approach as Margaret Wise Brown and Remy Charlip's classic The Dead Bird, this title should provoke both thought and discussion."
-- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"It's unusually corporeal . . . but it's this very tactile wrestling with death that feels so honest."
-- Booklist, starred review

"A quietly profound new picture book"
-- Maria Russo, New York Times

"The dog and the rat have found a good way to honor the life of a being who's now gone. They've gotten to work making something fantastic and original."

-- New York Times

"A jumping-off point to explore death and compassion."
-- Travis Jonker, 100 Scope Notes

"A masterwork of minimalist storytelling... full of quiet wit and wistful wonder."
-- Maria Popova, Brain Pickings

"Run, don't walk, to get a look at [The] Flat Rabbit. Be sure to look both ways before crossing the street ... The text and the artwork, which are deadpan (pun intended) and charming, are open to many interpretations."
-- Hicklebee's Bookstore, San Jose, CA

"A masterwork of minimalist storytelling...full of quiet wit and wistful wonder."
-- Brain Pickings
