'A captivating and surprising picture book packed with intricate illustrations and a strong message - that kindness is more important than money. This wonderful picture book is packed with beautifully observed illustrations, full of gentle humour and intricate detail, which reflect a multicultural, multi-ethnic town.'Book Trust; 'A wonderful demonstration of the fact that kindness is worth so much more than anything that money can buy - something else we've learned in the last few months. A book to ponder upon and discuss across a wide age range.' Red Reading Hub; 'A beautiful book to share and use to remind us that money isn't necessary to be happy, and that kindness costs nothing but makes the world a nicer place to be a part of.' What I read; 'Kitamura's simple but emotive story speaks loudly about the power of kindness and its value to us as human beings in a shared world, while his richly detailed and carefully crafted illustrations are brimming with warm humour, compassion and acute insight. With its playful story, subtle philosophy, and resonant messages about the infectious nature of a simple smile, this beautiful book is guaranteed to lift the spirits of readers young and old.'
