"a vibrant modern retelling of a classic Russian folk tale...Rendered in electric hues…like a delectable candy box… There is a lesson here — about friendship, and sharing — but the book never feels plodding or pedantic. Its rhythms are as surprising as its vivid hues, full of small but powerful subversions of kid-lit logic: The animals show up in bunches, not page by page… What’s more, there are no grown-ups here. The animals are peers: They create their own society, and resolve their own conflict. Which may be why the lesson just goes down like the truth." - The New York Times Book Review
**"Corr’s neon colors and joyous folk-naive artwork set this Russian folktale aglow....The animal household embodies cooperation and peaceful resolution, and Corr’s artwork mesmerizes."-- Publishers Weekly Starred Review - Publishers Weekly
** "Well-told, charmingly illustrated, and with a positive portrayal of inclusiveness and creating community, this noteworthy picture book is sure to delight."--Booklist Starred Review - Booklist
**"Readers will delight in the striking illustrations and captivating characters, while text repetition makes for a wonderful read-aloud. Corr's artwork is a feast for the eyes. Dazzling." Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW - Kirkus Reviews
"This modest tale is somewhat reminiscent of “The Mitten” and offers a lesson on the marvels of what can be accomplished when creatures work together. A colorful addition for storytimes and one-on-one sharing."--School Library Journal - School Library Journal
