Droll and delightful. . . Rollicking? Yes, plus great fun, while the broadside against lab testing on animals won't be lost on even the most naïve of readers.
--The New York Times Book Review

Serious themes lightened by comedic touches; the strong emotional attachments will linger with readers.
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Genius rodent Clementine finds her purpose with the help of friends and the game of chess in Sorosiak's (I, Cosmo) heartfelt, adventure-filled tale. . . . Maintaining a strong emotional core through Clementine's voice, Sorosiak explores themes--including animal cruelty, duty, empathy, and intelligence--with a deft, light touch.
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

This heartwarming and hopeful story is told through letters written by Clementine to Rosie as she finds her purpose in the world. Sorosiak successfully allows the reader to get to know the characters through these letters while still telling a story full of adventures and bravery. . . . The serious themes in the book are dealt with carefully and thoughtfully, making this a good choice for group discussion particularly for older readers. . . a reminder that there is a lot of goodness and friendship in the world.
--School Library Connection (starred review)

The escape-from-the-lab premise is a favorite within the animal-fantasy genre, but Sorosiak keeps it fresh in her latest endeavor. . . this sweetspirited adventure will easily find fans.
