“The theme color (purple) and the look (childlike illustrations on a clean white background) each recall Crockett Johnson’s classic, Harold and the Purple Crayon. Ideal for young children. Purple Little Bird, with his bright color, oversize head, and anxious expression, is plenty appealing.” (ALA Booklist)
“Foley’s big, loose black lines and off-register swaths of color provide warmth and a consistently cheerful energy.” (Publishers Weekly)
“Foley uses a crayon palette to good effect, with warm hues and quick strokes that color outside the friendly cartoon lines and fill the page. Satisfying for the very youngest.” (Kirkus Reviews)
