"This simple-seeming picture book has a great deal to offer, an appealing animal character, a story in which the sense of danger resolves happily, a clever use of text and style to increase language development, an introduction to a beautiful and threatened habitat with endangered wildlife and an opportunity to explore, learn and look closely via compelling illustrations."

Books for Keeps 5 star review


"Tremendous illustrations complement precise, present-tense text complete with bold onomatopoeic language and font... an all-enveloping, hugely satisfactory, sensory-rich experience."



"This has to be one of the most beautiful books we've seen this year..."
