Editorial Reviews

“The energy of art and text move seamlessly down to nighttime—and a young reader’s nap or bedtime. Excellent layout, text, and illustrations make for a thoroughly satisfying story.”—Kirkus Reviews starred review"A striking aspect of the dynamic digital artwork is the shifting sense of scale, which demonstrates clearly that size is a relative concept. An eye-catching picture book with an intrepid little hero."— Booklist starred review"Big, it seems, doesn’t need to refer to revelations, drama, or physical size; it can speak instead to the significance of having a friend who is deeply simpatico."— Publishers Weekly starred review
