Reviews from all over the world
"Swales’s wide-eyed figures and simple shapes recall Chris Haughton’s work, with extra volume and detail." —Publisher’s Weekly
"A refreshing story about friendship and the sensitive complexity of it at a level that even the youngest of children can appreciate. Sometimes what we all need is for those we love most to pause and just give us a hug for no reason in particular." — Wandering Bookseller
"Tender and vibrant illustrations and a sweet, sweet friendship are a good start. What happens after Big hides?" —Jileen Moore, Square Books
