* "Prahin masters the story's execution on every level . . . Entertainingly spot-on." --BookPage, starred review

"This simply told, sweet, gently humorous story will have great appeal for young readers/listeners, and Mouse is a quietly charming heroine kids will earnestly root for. Delightful, pastel-colored cartoon illustrations beguile . . . Time spent in this bottle is time well spent indeed." --Kirkus Reviews

"Prahin gives little ones a thrilling adventure in miniature with this mouse-centered tale." --Booklist

"Prahin renders engaging characters and dreamlike backdrops in a palette of verdant fresh greens, pale blues, and touches of old rose. The ship-in-a-bottle charms (it's like a small, seaworthy caravan), and Mouse is a poised hero . . . A pleasure for readers." --Publishers Weekly

"Gently situates a refugee story in picture-book form . . . The simple prose has both a cadence and formality that echoes folkloric tones . . . Could spark discussion among youngsters about whom we decide to care about and why, and what truly makes a home." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
