“Lichtenheld is a master of texture: His fir trees look spiky; the duck’s beret has the soft thickness of felt; and the blue sky has the opacity of a northern morning as the fog begins to lift. Compare this with the average digitally colored picture book and your eyes can almost feel the difference.”

“… filled with child-friendly humor, action and adventure… A humorous – make that hysterical – homage to movies and big dreams.”

“A rambunctious and hilarious story of embracing the unexpected.”

“High-octane entertainment that also addresses defying expectations, not to mention gravity.”

“The illustrations are hilarious, and Lichtenheld’s attention to detail will have kids scouring every page. The message to break down stereotypes and push past social constraints is clear but isn’t delivered in a sappy, predictable manner.”

“. . .A future classic.”
