Reviews
Luxbacher's stunning mixed-media collage illustrations surround Hohn's lilting narrative with color, texture, and sensitivity.-- "Booklist"
Hohn contrasts Caribbean and Canadian cultures tenderly, with deep understanding of both, and she and Luxbacher have created a sweet, immersive and loving book that will benefit both young new arrivals to a country and those just meeting them.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
