From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 5-- A factual yet sensitive picture book about a boy's father being sent to prison. The black-and-white illustrations of predominately white characters match the detailed story of the sobering event. One feels the quiet sadness Andy experiences in first discovering his father is guilty of a crime, and then the harder task of facing the day-to-day changes this fact has made in his life. His fear of people finding out the truth about his father and his realization that other families have problems also give the book real substance. The wife's unwavering loyalty, even moving close to the prison in order to visit her husband, encourages the boy's longing for a happy ending, which happens with the father's parole. A valuable book because of its unique subject matter. --Iris Roz, Moore Elem . School, Brentwood, PA
