Reviews

"Lilly is one of the great female characters in literature--like Anna Karenina with whiskers or Scarlett O'Hara with paws." -- USA Today

"In all of children's literature there is just a handful of characters we think of as family--Madeline, Winnie-the-Pooh, and Charlotte come to mind--and when this young generation is old enough to reflect on the ones it loved, Lilly will probably lead the pack." -- New York Times Book Review

"Henkes gets it all just right. All of the bustling, inventive artwork is a pleasure to look at. The whole book, art and text, is lovingly layered to express the mixed emotions that all of us experience." -- Booklist (starred review)
