★ "A thoroughly charming take on sibling relationships." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Tatsukawa puts a fresh spin on a familiar story . . . that any younger sibling should instantly recognize." --Publishers Weekly

"Little ones with older siblings in particular will likely appreciate the boy's gradually shifting perspective, as well as the warm portrayal of the multifaceted nature of sibling relationships." --Booklist

"Tatsukawa's digital art balances off-kilter geometry and soft textures, with our blackish, blockish bear lumbering around, appropriately dwarfing the brother . . . Younger siblings will find this a refreshing change from the many books portraying the new baby as the problematic interloper." --BCCB

"For a debut title, this picture book is very well paced, and nicely emphasizes how even children at odds can connect . . . Simple and sweet. A story that should resonate with siblings." --School Library Journal

"Younger sisters everywhere should relate to our protagonist's point of view--and his eventual realization: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em." --Horn Book
