"The success here is in the digital illustrations, with geometric shapes, shifting palettes, and varying compositions...for all of their angular similarity, the citizens of Linneopolis convey a surprising range of emotions with just their wide eyes and some well-suited apparel, while the shapes Linus finds on his journey have both structure and whimsy."--BCCB
"The striking art helps to carry the simple story and will encourage young readers to be themselves, accept differences, and see themselves in the shoes (or tiny stick legs) of the rectangular hero."--Kirkus
