Praise

Moore’s simple text is sprightly and inviting, with exclamations and asides that make the audience feel present and included. Her elegant yet cozily rustic illustrations are particularly effective, with delicate shading and crosshatching adding rich but subtle textures. The kind of kids who love to make forts and playhouses in the backyard or living room will find this especially appealing. This would work equally well for bedtime reading or group storytime; either way, youngsters (and their adults) will enjoy spending some time in this pleasant woodsy world.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)

Moore’s artwork for this appealing book has a timeless quality. Her pictures depict an inviting woodland setting and express the personalities of a group of animal friends who become an unlikely family. One can almost get lost in the full-bleed pages and spreads, many of which are wordless, evoking the peacefulness of the forest and the warmth of the animals’ relationship. A charming tale that underscores the rewards of cooperation.
