"In a conceptual work of categorization, Higgins (Circle Under Berry) writes short, fanciful, often funny observations, sorted into the divisions of the title . . . Art by Miyares (Hope at Sea), often shadowed in pencil gray, creates a quiet, reflective feeling . . . Each section heading features a piece of paper engineering-each an elegant, interactive creation-and the book ends with a dramatic gatefold. These and the book's luxurious length make it an abstract journey with many turns and surprises."-Publishers Weekly
"[V]isually stunning and emotionally rich. . . . [Big and Small and In-Between] is designed to inspire conversation and reflection about what is depicted on each page. Expressive illustrations in deep colors and intriguing textures elegantly unite with the words to create a thought-provoking and emotional new whole. This lovely story stands out from others in the genre as it will connect with readers of all ages while encouraging discussion of life's myriad moments-both great and small."-School Library Journal, starred review
"BIG AND SMALL AND IN-BETWEEN, by Carter Higgins. Illustrated by Daniel Miyares. (Chronicle, $18.99, ages 3 to 5.) Size is all about perspective in this profoundly moving, charmingly crafted picture book. And it changes: As the witty paper constructions that start each section open out and fold back in, so do our minds and hearts."-The New York Times
"Written by Carter Higgins and illustrated by Daniel Miyares, this compact and thoughtful picture book roams in a speculative way through a child's awareness of size and perspective. The text mingles humor with lyricism and evokes childhood without ever seeming childish. The accompanying pictures do the same sort of tone-shifting, moving from the puckish. . .to the fantastical. . .to the tenderly quotidian." -The Wall Street Journal
