Editorial Reviews

".the best recent picture book by light years, is stylishly spellbinding" Telegraph"A story about possibilities and disappointments with a triumphant ending, all of which Jeffers captures through the beautifully expressive changing moods of his little boy." Guardian"This is a magical, beautifully illustrated tale about reaching for dreams. Adults tend to think of waiting as tedious, but the magic of this book is that it understands waiting as children wait - alert, apprehensive and using their imaginations." Mail on Sunday"Hail to new talent. If only all picture books could be this good" The Bookseller
