Review, The Horn Book, September/October 2011
“In Weber’s straightforward text, Mrs. Bendosa’s well-cadenced voice adds humor (“All this for a chicken we’re giving back?”) while Mr. Bendosa’s refrain—“How much trouble is one little chicken?…is one small goat?…are two small goats?”—speaks to his mensch-like qualities. Kleven’s varied mixed-media illustrations, depicting an indeterminate Old Country setting, are full of texture and patterns.”

Review, Kirkus Reviews, July 1, 2011
“Enlivened with Kleven’s vibrant folk-art collage renderings, this tale will have readers thinking twice before ever saying “finders, keepers” again.”

Review, School Library Journal, July 1, 2011
“The colors are rich; the textures and patterns beg to be touched, and the ending is likely to leave readers pondering this story.”
