"Stylistically economical but expressive in language and art, this [book] never loses its naive point of view. Cat and rabbit are endearingly rendered with seemingly effortless and unerring black line surrounded by generous white space. The achievement cannot be overestimated—feather light treatment of the weightless subject and all of it made charmingly comprehensible."
" The author’s spare artwork is as streamlined, childlike, and winsome as her narrative, which is likely to inspire dialogue—and surely offer reassurance&mdashlabout what might lie ahead."
" This unsentimental story may comfort children who see their own questions and concerns mirrored in the ruminations of the two protagonists."
