"Galotta uses an array of media, including watercolors and colored pencils, to lovingly reflect the heroine's inner emotions and thoughts in the details and background on each page . . . This touching story celebrates the joys of friendship, finding a home, and the power of libraries. Pair with similar picture books such as Sam -McBratney's Will You Be My Friend? and James Dean's Pete the Cat Checks Out the Library." --School Library Journal, starred review

"A gentle ode to the effect one person can have on another, and what a library can offer a community." --Publishers Weekly

"Galotta enriches the nostalgic undertones with glimpses of lush flowers, tiny robots, a dragon, and other imaginary elements . . . A cogent, warming reminder that public libraries have always been more than just repositories for books." --Kirkus Reviews

""A heartfelt tribute to the power of libraries, and the power of kindness." --Mara Wilson, actress and author
