"Georgie is pretty doggone adorable . . . definitely a charmer." --Kirkus Reviews

"Chan's ink-and-watercolor illustrations are full of playful details to enjoy, and her animals' anxious expressions and lumpy-lanky bodies create a cast of friends who can be idiosyncratic and insecure, yet are confident to be themselves." --Publishers Weekly

"Young readers will delight at tracing Georgie's path through the aerial-view illustration of the Brooklyn-ish neighborhood, and readers of all ages will enjoy the pleasing illustrations." --Examiner.com
