Reviews

McCarty's characteristic, ever-so-delicate shading gives the faces of his roly-poly creatures substance and softness. His sly, Dick-and-Jane prose ( It is cold, Pedro keeps saying) makes this a rewarding readaloud. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) A message emphasizing the importance of trying new things is unobtrusively folded in, but most of all, readers will come away with a genuine sense of fun and the joy of family and friends. A delightful winter excursion. -- School Library Journal (starred review)
