Amazon Best Books of the Month, November 2011:Neville puts an inspired twist on the age-old challenge of making new friends. Author Norton Juster, best known for The Phantom Tollbooth, uses a minimum of text to great effect, melding beautifully with G. Brian Karas's mixed media illustrations to tell the story. Neville begins with a boy sent by his mother out into their new neighborhood to "take a little walk down the block." He’s not at all happy about the situation, but comes up with a brilliant idea that soon has all the neighborhood children rallied around him. The enthusiasm and joy of their undertaking and the ease in which a unified effort can forge childhood friendships are spot-on. The surprise ending invites gales of laughter and--fortunately--Neville is a book that can be read over and over again without losing the fun. --Seira Wilson
Starred Review, School Library Journal, September 2011:
"...this ingenious foray into breaking into a new neighborhood makes for an amusing and appealing story."
Starred Review, Booklist, October 15, 2011:
"The story’s simple charm comes to life in Juster’s well-paced, spare language. Karas’ deft mixed-media sketches carry remarkable weight. A harmonious blend of text and illustration, this is a warm, reassuring choice for all children who know the anxieties that come with big life changes."
