* “It’s an enchanting tribute to both full-throttle pretend play and the reassurance of a parent’s embrace.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

* “A tale of make-believe that children will delight in hearing again and again.” — School Library Journal, starred review

“From this simple premise of imaginative play, Bently and Oxenbury create a classically sweet picture book.” — Horn Book

“This one is sure to become a full-on family favorite at bedtime.” — The Washington Post
