—Foreword Reviews (starred review)
Two shipwrecked sailors confront preposterous woes with varying degrees of optimism in Einat Tsarfati’s delightfully farcical picture book It Could Be Worse. . . . Intricate digital illustrations in candy-colored hues include impressively detailed nautical pastedowns and lend a cheerful air to the daytime travails, while velvety blues dominate the climactic nighttime scenes. . . . Optimists and alarmists both will relate to this entertaining adventure as George and Albertini navigate laughably bad situations before finding safe harbor.
