Editorial Reviews

The story's sense and wit are most fully expressed in the text, but the character's actions and emotions are most memorably portrayed in the artwork? A fine picture book with a fierce, bold, and (deep down) compassionate heroine."- Booklist "Emotionally true from cover to cover."- Kirkus Reviews, STARRED review"Birdsall's crisp and delightful first picture book? .believable characters, a tightly constructed story line, and a nod to past children's literature."- Publishers Weekly "This gem of a book will resonate with older siblings everywhere."- School Library Journal "
