"Joone could be a contemporary, country-dwelling cousin to Eloise: another precocious, articulate and turtle-loving child with charm to spare." - Kirkus Reviews
"A sweet, gentle narrative about a child who is being raised by her grandfather….Moon shows promise, not only as a picture-book writer, but as an illustrator as well." - School Library Journal
"Moon’s ability to convey her heroine’s self-assured contentment and love for her grandfather without resorting to the twee or overly literal is the mark of a real, if nascent talent." - Publishers Weekly
