MEDIA REVIEWS
The focus on friendly camaraderie and community-building will be appreciated by many adults eager to share their values, and this quiet tale, with the children in their lives. --Kirkus Reviews In her debut as both author and illustrator, Harnett gets everything right. Her story is touching without being overly sentimental (which is no easy feat). And her gorgeous illustrations perfectly suit the mood. --The New York Times [A] poignant and quietly humorous portrait of a community coming together [...] Mixing small vignettes with larger street scenes, Harnett nimbly juggles her large cast and the twin emotions of loneliness and contented companionship that she threads though this moving story. --Publisher's Weekly Katie Harnett's charming story celebrates the simultaneous cunning and caring of one very special cat, and his ability to bring together a whole community of humans. --Janet Minichiello, Politics & Prose Harnett has created a lovely reminder of the importance of noticing the loneliest, the neediest, in our midst. It is a necessary, touching reminder that will resonate for young and old, paired with warm, expressive, detailed illustrations that depict a beautifully diverse neighborhood. --Hannah DeCamp, Avid Bookshop It gets right to the nub of modern urban life -- the wonderful diversity, coupled with the isolation and awkwardness that means we may just about know the names of the people next door but, beyond that, it's a smile and a nod at best. --A Bookish Life Archie is truly a cat looking for his forever home, and I'm proud to say he has a home on my shelf! --Let's Talk Picture Books, Best Picture Books of 2016
