About the Author
David Soman has illustrated many beautiful picture books including the New York Times best-selling Ladybug Girl, which he co-created with his wife Jacky Davis. He is an instructor at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, and lives with his family in upstate New York where he often walks the mountains outside his studio, and where sometimes, his yard is visited by a Great and Not so Terrible Bear.
Reviews
"Soman crafts a beautiful story, wrapping it in a satisfying adventure that teaches readers to look beyond their safe and familiar world, to believe in themselves, to keep struggling, and to bring a good friend along any impossible journey."--School Library Journal
"Classically drafted, light-filled spreads follow a pair of child heroes through this mountainfaring adventure by Soman."--Publishers Weekly
"The illustrations depict the majesty of forest and mountains with assurance and are especially successful in their atmospheric infusion of light and shadow."--Kirkus
"Soman's gorgeous, painterly illustrations -- watercolors mixed with gouache and pencil -- play gracefully with scale, doing justice to both mighty landscape and small, intrepid siblings."--New York Times Book Review
"Enjoy this as a modern fairy tale or dig deep to explore the subtext. Both will be pleasing reading experiences."--Booklist
