"The cheerful, bold artwork complements the mood and setting of the story. The straightforward, repetitive plot is fast paced and will encourage children to anticipate the next calamity, and guess what the new item will be. With bright, eye-catching artwork and a simple text, this story makes a good read-aloud."--School Library Journal

"This gentle tale will delight young readers (and listeners)."--Kirkus Reviews

"Pichon's pictures teem with energy, whether emanating from the comically expressive heroine or the boisterous but eager-to-please animals. The benevolently exotic setting glows with lemon yellow light and lime-green foliage, and readers will enjoy spotting, on each spread, the pair of eyes shining out between the jungle leaves."--Publishers Weekly

"This easy-to-read (and learn) folktale will be a hit with young audiences for its direct action and elegantly circular structure."--Booklist
