"Drawn, shaded, and occasionally crosshatched ... and tinted with watercolors in yellow, tan, brown, rose, and pale blue hues, the beautifully composed illustrations give this picture book a handcrafted look that suits the timeless story." --Booklist, starred review

"The interior pages start out looking like a chapter book, but the text is broken with exciting spreads, graphic novel-style -layouts, and playfully illustrated text. These design decisions make this book feel new and familiar--a classic readers will be -talking about in the future." --School Library Journal, starred review

"The contrast between Evergreen's own self-doubt and the way she shines under pressure is conveyed with humor and skill in this adventuresome allegory about confronting the world outside as well as one's own very real fears." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A spellbinding tale that will never brown or fade with time." --Kirkus, starred review

"The varied page layouts convey both the coziness of Evergreen's world and the tension of life as part of the woodland food chain." --The Horn Book

"Cordell's world building is immensely satisfying, and Evergreen is packed with entertaining textual and visual details." --BookPage
