"The textile and graphic art background of the author-illustrator shine through in the black-and-white vintage-style drawings with bright color accents that capture the landscapes, bustling life, and lush flora and fauna of Nu Dang’s world. With its simple story and culturally enriching illustrations, this title is a recommended purchase for any library. Lovely for one-on-one reading and small group sharing." -Jasmine L. Precopio, Fox Chapel Area School District, School Library Journal
