Praise

“The animals, in rich colors, the companionable cat and dog, the horse in the field, the elephant which the little boy plans to ride and the indomitable Ola himself, are very amusing. The gentle absurdity of the story and its lively action will please and satisfy 3 to 5 year olds.” –The New York Times

"Universal gay appeal can exist with distinction of execution, as in the d’Aulaires’s Too Big." –The New York Times, November 11, 1945

"Those familiar with D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths will appreciated the New York Review Books’ efforts to unite the authors’ backlist." –Publishers Weekly

"The d’Aulaires were, of course, the singularly gifted author-illustrators, creators, by the score, of timeless children’s books…a number of their books…are still in print, classics that make for perfect gifts each and every year." –Smithsonian Magazine
