"This story by acclaimed author Kincaid gets new life in this picture book with lush, glowingly realistic illustrations...The artwork is gorgeous and the feeling of being a kid who's a little too short to see what's happening will likely resonate with the target audience."
"The phenomenal artwork is what truly makes this book special. The landscapes of the sea, the sky, and outer space are breathtaking. Cort s's different blending and thinning of the colors create a world of beauty. This fascinating tale of perspective and point of view makes a fine addition for most collections."
--School Library Journal
"Now there's a version, complete with more of the gorgeous, yet weirdly subversive illustrations. The best part? It's still funny.
