MEDIA REVIEWS
"With just the lightest touch of the fantastical, the quiet tone and language combine with the broad-brushed, sun-washed illustrations to create a dreamy, magical essence to this story of personal discovery." * BookTrust *
"A magic-tinged story about finding unexpected connections... The muted palette, smudgy line work, and somewhat unexplained nature of Nara's situation add up to a haunting, slightly surreal story that speaks to the rewards of both independence and companionship." * Publishers Weekly *
"Ungureanu's illustrations are... reminiscent of Maurice Sendak's work, adding to the book's overall nostalgic and somewhat otherworldly feel." * Kirkus *
"A heartening story about exploration, bravery, and making new friends." * Booklist *
"A wonderful story all about longing for adventure and friendship" * Early Years Educator *
