Reviews

★ "The colorful illustrations are delightful and invite the reader to explore. Pages with pictures of each of the figments and a map of the bureau departments are especially engaging. This book would be a great addition to any STEAM collection." --School Library Connection, starred review

"The Montagues fill their worldbuilding fantasy, rendered in digitally colored pencil drawings, with gentle humor and rich details, including an elaborate schematic of the bureau's many departments. Their pages should reward repeated looks while nudging readers to get out of their own way." --Publishers Weekly

"The delightful, detailed illustrations provide a lot of interesting moments for a small audience to pore over." --Kirkus

"It is a profound message handled competently by Montague, and in narrowing the overwhelming scope of the story to a mail carrier with a penchant for poetry, the narrative emphasizes the power of a single voice . . . the muted color palette establishes an appealing dreamlike atmosphere that complements the story's themes. Offer this book to any young person in need of a reminder about the importance of sharing their voice." --BCCB
