Reviews
"Lam leads readers on a wordless adventure through extraordinary paper collage illustrations ... Whether shared with preliterate children or in units on imaginative play, this ingenious title will have readers flipping back to the beginning of the story to repeat the adventure."-- "School Library Journal"
"The collage illustrations, in a palette dominated by deep blacks and oranges, capture the spirited imagination of a young person at play. An out-of-this-world good time."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"The out-of-this-world exploits of an intrepid explorer propel Lam's well-paced wordless story ... Careful paper cut-outs succeed in creating drama out of gesture, physical form, and the strangeness of the landscape being traversed."-- "Publishers Weekly"
