Reviews
Mantle's whimsical black-and-white illustrations enhance this playful, Peter Pan-like tale of sibling rivalry and affection. A series starter with heart.--Booklist
McLachlan does an excellent job of establishing the sibling tension before introducing the fantasy elements, and Rose's desire to grow up and fit in feels as familiar and accessible as Arthur's yearning to remain a child. This narrative's sheer inventiveness marks it as distinct. The text and Mantle's illustrations go wild with creativity. A sweet adventure and a paean to imagination and childhood innocence.--Kirkus Reviews
