A sweet, reassuring validation of the power of a close friendship and empathy. - Kirkus, starred review

Profound and reassuring. - Publishers Weekly, starred review

[What's the Matter, Marlo? is] beautifully precise, and accessible in its simplicity. Not only does it speak to grief in others, insightfully separating the person from the (sometimes eruptive and unpredictable) emotions, but it also models empathy. - The New York Times

A gentle ode to the sadder and sweeter side of childhood friendship, Marlo is a delight. - Vera Brosgol, author of the Caldecott Honor book Leave Me Alone!

What's the Matter, Marlo? is a touching story that pulls on your heartstrings. - Dan Santat, author of The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend

Distinguished by its trust in readers to discover key parts of the narrative through the illustrations and to contemplate the full meaning of the events and emotions. - Hornbook
