Reviews

"This is a gentle, resonant story that explores the ways we struggle to learn about one another, and discover ourselves in the process." --Booklist

"Côté's black-and-white cartoons nicely highlight the action and, together with the text, capture the very essence of childhood summers. Good fun." --Kirkus Reviews

"Whimsical ink sketches enhance the storytelling in this creative early chapter book that features smart, endearing characters and humorous antics." --School Library Journal

"Wong is still a keen interpreter of the preteen psyche, deftly exploring such issues as the perceived exoticness of ethnic identities, the ethics of line-cutting, and the almost insurmountable odds against nurturing friendship between a very tall girl and a very short boy." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"A truly enjoyable read filling a very real and undeniable need." --Elizabeth Bird, A Fuse #8 Production
