"Kirk's skillfully paced mix of vignettes, close-ups and long shots guide readers smoothly through this emotional odyssey."
--"Kirkus Reviews
""His frequent use of bold, large-scale drawing captures Monkey's equally outsize temperament, while the emphatic, minimal text is subtly poignant and supremely performable."
--"Publishers Weekly"
