"Five animal friends seek an activity they'll all enjoy, but it's a challenge. . . . Gilmore combines sinuous animal contours and sandy tints into cool, graceful spreads that belie the drama to come. . . . the heroic group, having triumphed over danger, shares a proud, Three Musketeers-like air, bringing relieved readers into their number in a story that's not for the faint of heart."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Five friends--Turtle, Badger, Anteater, Mandrill, and Owl--want to do something together . . . but finding an activity they can all enjoy is not easy. . . . Gilmore's palette . . . is subdued and light, and . . . her characters fill the page in a way that is lively and disarming. . . . Expressive, personable, and somehow hilarious. . . . Pretty terrific, indeed, and visually marvelous."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Five disparate friends--an anteater, mandrill, badger, owl, and turtle--decide that they need an activity. But not just any old activity! It needs to be terrific. . . . Gilmore's unusual story is playfully dark and very funny, with stylized illustrations, rendered in watercolor and pens, fabulously detailed and expressive. The net result is a book that is silly and scary and--you guessed it--absolutely terrific."--Booklist (starred review)
