Praise

“Being small doesn’t mean you can’t have big goals! A pebble who feels like a boulder sets out to prove that little ones can accomplish great things in this quirky, suspenseful, pun-filled tale. . . . Rocky landscapes and stony surfaces are depicted with just the right amount of detail. . . . Young readers will root for this less-than-pint-sized hero while he makes the most of his own personal talents. . . . They will learn a bit about rock types and formations (factual information is included in the final notes). Replete with wry, comic references and infused with a sense of adventure, this is a lighthearted tale that readers will certainly not ‘take for granite.’”Kirkus Reviews

“Miyares paints Rocky on heavily textured paper, adding depth and richness to his spreads; saturated reds and purples contribute drama. It’s tough to cast a rock as a main character, but Shaffer comes up with lots of ways a rock can travel and uses every geological pun she can think of. Rock hounds and teachers doing earth science units are a natural audience.”Publishers Weekly
