Praise

Starred Review, Booklist, August 1, 2013:
“In a perfect blend of story and art, the humorous watercolor-and-ink illustrations are bursting with color and energy on every page… This is a paean to love and friendship, which can come in all species, shapes, and sizes.”

Starred Review, School Library Journal, July 2013:

“With lessons on life, love, and vegetable gardening, this tale will be cherished by children, and their parents will be happy to read it to them often.”

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, May 27, 2013:
“Sensitive but funny… Miller’s easygoing storytelling taps into the familiar scenario of children making fierce attachments to favorite objects.”

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, June 1, 2013:
“This season-spanning turn with high-spirited Sophie offers endearing lessons about nurture and regeneration.”
