Praise

Jack's journey to a new kind of family is inspiring and never sappy
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Jack comes to realize that he hadn't been alone, that family and people he didn't even know were there for him in a �makeshift herd.' The happy yet realistic ending leaves Jack (and readers) �light-headed with hope.’
—Horn Book

Jennifer Richard Jacobson's nuanced and heart-wrenching middle-grade novel, Small as an Elephant, gives a quiet force to one resilient boy and his mentally ill mother.
—Bookpage

A classic journey story, this is a very believable and exciting adventure with modern accoutrements.
—Library Media Connection

A near-perfect mix of poignancy, humor, and masterful writing make for an unforgettable journey.
—Midwest Book Review
