Praise

“Slyly funny and poignant . . . a thrilling adventure.”–Caldecott Medal winner Paul O. Zelinsky

“This may be the most charming book I’ve read all year. It’s a challenge to build a story around a protagonist who can’t speak, and Wegelius does this skillfully, emphasizing qualities that make us human.” — The New York Times Book Review

“Features a complex mystery, an intricately constructed narrative, and deep characters. Committed, careful readers will be richly rewarded.” — Kirkus Reviews, Starred

“A richly imagined and thoroughly unique adventure.” — Booklist, Starred

“A thrilling adventure. Prepare to meet the remarkable Sally Jones; you won’t soon forget her.”–PW, Starred

“A new animal heroine has arrived on the scene. An unusual and oddly charming adventure.”–SLJ

“Award-winning Swedish writer and illustrator Jakob Wegelius weaves together a head-spinning story of mystery, intrigue, love and adventure, beautifully translated by Peter Graves.”–Shelf Awareness

” . . . gorgeous, clever, and memorable.”–The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
