The New York Times

Starred Review Foreword

The cute and very literal artwork features humanoid animals in simple outfits and homey settings. The color palette is a very attractive mix of earth and jewel tones and the art looks like watercolor accented with pencil, all in service of flat, childlike illustrations with lots of familiar details. The author is a professor of psychology and this book is part of a series about small childhood dilemmas.
