"Nicely paced text and colorful scratchboard-like images are beautifully connected, with the wandering chicks' paths drawn in loopy lines. This is a book to savor and reread, in the tradition of Margot Zemach's 'It Could Always Be Worse'." --Booklist
"... sharp-witted tale drawn from Jewish and Islamic sources. Lafrance deserves a special shout-out for her work -- she proves once again that she s a rare talent who can combine naif rendering with a highly sophisticated and consistently inventive sense of composition. Ages 4-8." --Publishers Weekly
