"A friendship slowly develops, with the duo finding clever ways of sharing activities without either of them moving beyond their respective comfort zone--complemented by very funny art . . . a tale that quietly applauds both the efforts and the rewards of friendship building and risk-takin. Read it and smile." --Kirkus

"In a lightly rib-tickling examination of fright and friendship, Doreen Cronin suggests that shared perspectives and accountable friends represent a promising path to wider vistas." --Publisher's Weekly

"Young readers will find this book highly approachable, and they will likewise enjoy examining the detailed illustrations. The images frequentlysay more than the words do, with subtle humor and occasionally interwoven between the words and the pictures, enhancing the appeal of the book.This enjoyable story of two unlikely friends whomake each other brave is a good addition to library collections." --School Library Journal

"Doreen Cronin offers a charming story that will resonate with children who are shy or anxious around unfamiliar people and places. Written with simplicity and sensitivity, the well-structured story reads aloud well. The delicate illustrations, created with poster paint, suit the quiet tone of this satisfying picture book."--Booklist
