Awards

Children’s Book Committee at Bank Street College Children’s Book of the Year SELECTION 2014

Praise

“A gentle robotic rebellion.” —USA Today

A sweet tale . . . Yaccarino [is] especially good at slipping in the small, nourishing details that are savored upon repeated readings.” —The New York Times

“Yaccarino uses bright, solid colors and lots of white space for Doug’s unplugged exploration scenes to illustrate his childlike exuberance as he finally takes part in the world around him.” —School Library Journal 

“A lively, colorful celebration of unmediated living.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Bright blocks of color defined by swooping black lines—conjure a playful contemporary environment; without preaching, he comments smartly on children’s screen time and the necessity of outdoor play and exploration.” —Publishers Weekly
