Editorial Reviews

Review

"A gentle story of calm courage and of quiet, trusting perseverance that will comfort readers in their anxious times." -- Kirkus (Kirkus Reviews October 15, 2017)

"The team behind If I Had a Little Dream imagines a journey of ocean exploration as a boy and giraffe set off in a small wooden boat. ...Castrillon’s images convey an underlying tranquility that carries readers along with the explorers. It’s a voyage they’ll want to take again. " -- Publishers Weekly (Publishers Weekly November 13, 2017)

"In lilting rhymes and lush, jewel-toned illustrations, Laden and Castrillon deliver an imaginative adventure through stormy seas.... Castrillon’s beautifully surreal artwork is captivating. Each scene is full of imaginative sea creatures, crashing waves, blue-green tendrils of rain, and moonlit skies, all rendered in swirling organic shapes and lines and a dense palette of saturated tones....the artwork is so gorgeous, and the wind-down conclusion, wherein the travelers are welcomed home, might make this a nice pick for bedtime. " — Booklist (Booklist Online Dec 12, 2017)

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book for all ages!!
By Peggy on August 9, 2018
My family loves this book! The younger kids (6 months-4 years), love having this book read to them over and over again - it became a favorite right away. The 9 year old also loves the story, and she loves to look through all the pictures in the book. I highly recommend this book! This book is by the author of "If I had a Little Dream", which is another book all of my kids love. Please mark if you find my review helpful. Thank you so much!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique but simple rhyming with intriguing illustrations
By Jan on September 12, 2018
I’m giving 5 stars because the book has unique (to me) rhyming words and I love the artwork. I am excited to introduce it to my 14-month-old grandson who loves books, and his daddy is an artist. I think this book will definitely intrigue and fascinate our toddler now and years to come. My only “negative” comment is that the colors are not as intense as they are in the photos—both Amazon photo and my own iPhone photo look brighter than the actual book. I’m not a printer, but I feel like they should have used a little more ink. I plan to compare with a book store to see if this is a less expensive version than they sell in the brick and mortar stores. I do see it was manufactured in China; don’t know if that has anything to do with it. So my first impression was a tad disappointment compared to MY expectation. But I suspect this is how the book is intended to be printed. I’m very pleased with the sturdy paper (not cheap, relatively speaking), and the paper is off-white, which may affect the color perception. So, still, all in all, a five-star children’s book.
