"Fergus' deadpan text and Sookocheff's simple, flowing artwork work in elemental harmony, working together to elevate the book to a subliminal sophistication that breathes something quite smart into the proceedings."  — Kirkus, starred review

"Their charmingly raucous game of make-believe is appealing enough, but the sneaky lesson in deductive reasoning makes this frolicsome, read-aloud-friendly picture book truly outstanding." — Booklist, starred review

"An understated winner of a friendship story. . . . simultaneously of-the-moment and timeless." — Publishers Weekly, starred review
