Reviews from Around the World This is such a beautifully done story that my children love reading again and again. I love that much of the story is told through pictures -- and quite cleverly. Kevin Henkes is one of our favorite authors and he doesn't disappoint with this one!—Craig Louis Citro, Amazon
Thickly outlined in brown, Henkes’s animals exude sweetness and innocence; and a quietly surreal ending, which sees the setting sun morph into an egg and then an orange bird, subtly emphasizes the anything-is-possible potential of storytelling. ...Terrific encouragement for readers to embark on their own narrative experiments.—Publishers Weekly
