"Showing [Stein's] customary gift for spot-on evocations of childlike voice and sensibility. . . . Sometimes snail mail is just better. Here's proof."
(Kirkus Reviews, starred review)
"A clever and enticingly child-friendly format. . . . . Young ones will have more than their fair share of fun, and they'll understand the longing for someone who's gone away."
"Mouserella's ebullience comes through on every page. . . . Delightfully precocious letter. . . . Exercise in joyful self-expression."
"Will prompt children to think about their own letter writing. Those who have never written a letter will be encouraged to do so."
(School Library Journal)
