Reviews

Enormously satisfying [and] wholly original...this Lithuanian import portrays the friendship developing between a boy and a fox (...reminiscent of The Little Prince). There is much to savor: the honesty of unspoken ruminations, challenging dialogue, and myriad unexpected details.
Fresh and unexpected... A parade of people, vehicles, and animals through Kiudulaite's colorful digital collages contributes to the atmosphere of bouncy unpredictability.
This sweet story of friendship will forever keep children hoping to find adventure.
The outstanding writing in this book reflects a deep respect for childhood and the importance of adaptability and absurdity.
