Reviews

For all its emotional resonance, the narrative is never soppy ... this appealing chapter book has a distinctive setting, plenty of humor, and unusual emotional clarity.
--Booklist (starred review)

With simply rendered illustrations that zero in on key elements of the story, Forrester extends the charm of this tale.Filled with both rollicking escapades and poignant moments, Parr's notable tale portrays a young boy's heartfelt appreciation of family and friends.
--Kirkus Reviews Recommended for public and school libraries, this will be useful as supplementary material in units about day-to-day life in another country.
--School Library Journal A playful yet sweet story in the tradition of E. Nesbit's The Treasure Seekers, this well-observed novel nimbly explores the balance of friendships and the fear and longing that hides beneath the most prickly personalities as it celebrates old-school scrapes and the rewards of mutual best friendship.
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books Heartfelt and humorous.
--Publishers Weekly Strongly plotted, with larger changes in the lives of the families woven into Trille's smaller-scope story.
--The Horn Book
