Reviews
"This endearing, lighthearted tale rests on an easy science concept . . . makes a fine springboard for imaginative thinking and art activities focused on helping pigs look upward. The colorful, lively, expressive illustrations, set mostly in square or rectangular panels, are appealing; readers will also appreciate the text, often set in colored type and including onomatopoeic sound words used to very dynamic effect." --Kirkus

"This is a sweet, funny tale of a girl who wants to share her love of the sky with her best pal. Highly recommended for story times, classrooms, and ­one-on-one reading." --School Library Journal

"Limited primary color palette combines with a goofy "did-you-know" premise to make a cheery, engaging storytime selection. The bold lines, matte colors, hand-lettered text, and plentiful onomatopoeia give a frenetic, made-by-kids feel that is sure to be crowd-pleasing, while comic-style panels move the story forward, stretching young readers' visual literacy skills . . . amusingly demonstrates that new experiences are always better when shared." --BCCB
