Review, THE NEW YORKER, October 10, 2011:
“The fifty-year birthday of a good children’s book marks a real passage, since it means that the book hasn’t been passed just from parent to child but from parent to child and on to child again. A book that has crossed that three-generation barrier has a good chance at permanence . . . [this is] an anniversary that matters.”
Review, THE ATLANTIC, October 30, 2011:
“The book is an absolute treasure to touch and to hold . . .”
