Praise

* “What’s a kid got to do to get a pet when the parents subscribe to the tiny house philosophy? . . . Hartland’s ingenuous gouache illustrations are chock-full of playful, humorous details, and the book’s fresh storyline exposing the tiny world of tardigrades will have an undeniable appeal to young readers. Visually, crisp dialogue bubbles mix with text and full-bleed illustrations to create a lively, engaging presentation (including an author’s note with tardigrade fun facts). . . . Original, superinteresting, expertly presented.”Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Paint[ed] in a playfully harried art style. . . . An author’s note about the fascinating creatures concludes this clever story perfect for the era of tiny living.”Publishers Weekly

“The loopy gouache artwork captures the antic family decampments and the narrator’s can-do attitude toward making the best of her situation even as she angles to get her way. . . . [Readers] will surely wonder at the worlds that exist just beyond their sight.”—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Almost every child yearns for a pet, and this book’s protagonist is no different. . . . Hartland uses a simple narrative and hilarious, detailed gouache paintings to tell a story that will have every child asking for a micro-pet. Fun and informative.”—School Library Journal
