"Friends separated by a move may be soothed by the (albiet
old-fashioned) idea that they can stay in touch via letters"
"This is a lovely story about concision, reticence, and just the
right balance of bitter and sweet."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review "Words and pictures combine to make a very satisfying story overall for young children and their caregivers."
--Horn Book Magazine "A sweet, understated story set amid a wonderfully odd landscape."
--Booklist "Ruzzier writes with a thoughtful simplicity, and the story, thematically similar to Dubuc's The Lion and the Bird, provides a useful connection point for kids who might relate to the sad feeling of being separated from a loved friend or family member. "
