Reviews

"An elegant exploration of love and familial relationships...This story is well paced and rhythmic in its dialogue, lending itself well to a group read-aloud."--School Library Journal
"Brief but emotionally intense...MacLachlan demonstrates her mastery of elegantly unfolding a tale and gently plucking at readers' heartstrings without taking a maudlin tone."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"A spare, poetically composed tale written in short chapters perfect for beginning read-it-alone readers, this should resonate with young and old alike--and makes for a great intergenerational story to share."--ALA Booklist
