People Magazine Best Children's Books of 2016
School Library Journal Best Books of 2016
Boston Globe
Best Books of 2016 "Cuevas's prose is laden with gems . . . gorgeous sentences as precious as the messages themselves. Beauty shines through a fog of sadness . . . Colors--the tawny body of a cat, the red of the man's Cousteau-esque knit cap--bloom with Stead's whispery pencil drawings."--The New York Times Book Review "Erin Stead's illustrations are as softly scuffed as sea glass and so suffused with wistfulness that readers ages 4-8 may feel pensive before they've embarked on the story.
Michelle Cuevas has reworked a historical curiosity--an official job, in Elizabethan England, of opening bottles that might contain naval secrets--into a contemporary tale of longing and consolation."--The Wall Street Journal * "Readers will find both consolation and encouragement on every visit to this emotionally resonant, evocative story."--Kirkus, starred review * "Stead's characters exude an endearing vulnerability and quirky charm. . . . A perfect pairing of text and art. Share this quiet story with your wishers and dreamers."--School Library Journal, starred review * "Caldecott Medalist Stead's ethereal spreads give the characters distinctive, captivating personalities. . . . The underlying message about learning to see the worth of every person is a treasure."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
