Praise

 “…Hartt-Sussman’s narrative touch is deft. Graham’s chalk pastels, a wacky delight from start to finish, bring appropriate lift to what could be a melancholy story. Her characters are uniquely quirky yet have a streak of photographic realism. Warm and offbeat.”
—Kirkus Reviews
 
“…Georgia Graham’s artwork is truly delightful…. The drawings suit the story so well and are complemented with large bold text in many strategic places…. The results are playful, quirky, colourful and action-packed artwork!”
—Highly Recommended, CM Magazine

“In a well told story, Hartt-Sussman gently captures all the feelings of jealousy and exclusion as well as the very real love between grandparents and grandchildren (and between Bob and Nana) and brings it to a satisfying conclusion.”
Canadian Children’s Book News

“Graham’s exaggerated chalk pastels feature a lurid carnival palette and in-your-face characterizations, providing a comedic balance to the boy’s pained emotional state.”
Publishers Weekly
