Reviews

"Bunting's simple tale focuses on the hardships of the journey and on the American ideals of freedom and safety. . . . Peck's richly colored crayon drawings yield added enjoyment each time they are perused. The mood changes from dark shades of desperation during the journey to the lighter tones of joy as the travelers at last find their refuge. . . . A poignant story and a thought-provoking discussion starter." -- School Library Journal

"A moving fictional presentation of the perilous voyage of a group of Caribbean refugees to this country. . . . Peck's beautiful full-color, double-spread illustrations capture the dignity and humanity of these humble folk, the somber night sky, and the sweep of the sea. . . . A compassionate depiction of the plight of many of our recent would-be immigrants." -- Kirkus Reviews
