* "Three-time Pura Belpré honoree Delacre combines two things--wildlife science and the alphabet--something hardly uncommon yet executed here with uncommon skill. Though the book is bilingual, its slight emphasis upon Spanish over English is not only appropriate, it should work to spark the curiosity of kids fluent only in the latter... Everything here in is perfect harmony." -- Booklist, starred review

* "Poetic and informative, a breath of fresh air in the too-often-contrived world of bilingual books." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "A rich and layered trip to the Andean cloud forest that revels in the miracles of biodiversity." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "VERDICT A great addition to school and public libraries." -- School Library Journal, starred review

"Delacre's graceful text, first in Spanish on each page and then just below in English, offers plenty of new words for speakers of either language -- or both. A glossary, a description of each creature and a summary of the scientific story of the olinguito round out this splendid, more-than-an-alphabet book." -- The Washington Post
