Editorial Reviews

“Sweet and richly detailed... Wei’s rich, complex mixed media illustrations make the story’s concept shine, totally capturing the magic of imagination, while Ruurs’s simple, rhythmic text pulls everything together.”

— School Library Journal

“A book that parents, primary teachers and librarians can use to introduce a discussion of the world of children's books. [Children] will enjoy the game of identifying the literary references hidden in the lines.”

— CM: Canadian Review of Materials

“[Pays] homage to the wonderful world of imagination found in children’s books.”
