The anthropomorphic animals’ attachment to each other is without label, making for an inclusive tale that just about any caregiver could easily share with little ones at bedtime... There’s a lot of love here, and it’s all good." -- Kirkus Reviews

"[A] tender picture book... Via warm, relaxed pencil and digitally rendered images, Karas whisks readers into a number of activities that elicit affectionate calculations literal and metaphorical." -- Publishers Weekly
