"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)

However, my kids don’t get it. My 4-year-old said, “I like the boat and the monster friend, but what was that about?” My 7-year-old explained in 1st grade terms that there is not a storyline here. I doubt we’ll read it again.
Sometimes it seems like a children’s book was written for adults. This is one of those times. The poetic rhythm of the words was fun for me. We all loved the illustrations. But a picture book that kids can’t follow just doesn’t make it into the read again and again pile.
