"A sweet story about the depth of what a beautiful place can provide beyond its beauty. A recommended purchase for most collections." --School Library Journal

"This picture book will speak to any child who wants to draw something exactly how it looks, with a lesson about how a shift in how we look at something can change everything." --Booklist

"Bellini and Coppo transform a universal moment of the child's consciousness into an elegant work full of empathy. No one can duplicate all the wonders of the world in a picture, but we can create something new, which is even better." --Imaginary Elevators

"A multi-layered story that invites thought, observation, conversation, and discovery." --Celebrate Picture Books

"Upon reaching the mountain, the boy realizes how important perspective and friendship are, which changes the way he views the world." --CityParent
