"A sweet cautionary tale about a world that requires constant novelty..."--Kirkus Reviews
"Adamson's animated cartoon artwork features comical, goggle-eyed characters rendered in loose, sketchy pencil lines and lots of bright watercolor washes, and the spectacular rainbow at the center of it all is charmingly expressive. Whimsical illustrations and a breezy lesson about value make this a great choice for group storytime."--Booklist
"Satisfying illustrations by the author mix detailed pencil line drawing with swaths of vivid watercolor for visually appealing scenes with humorous details. On one especially delightful spread, the rainbow continues to beam over an otherwise dark town, casting a glow over the rooftops while residents look up in wonder. "--School Library Journal
"The book is a good launching point for discussing themes of appreciation and gratitude; the message is clear without weighing down a lighthearted narrative."--School Library Journal
"Children will thoroughly enjoy this colorful read-aloud, whether one-on-one with an adult or during group storytimes."--School Library Journal
"The paradoxical notion that more is sometimes less is conveyed creatively and convincingly here..."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
