Read Reviews

Starred Review"Curato fleshes out Little Elliot’s personality in this installment—there are glimmers of a character with real depth beneath his cutie-pie visage—while continuing to come up with wonderful, Hopperesque images of a bygone New York.” - Publishers Weekly

Starred Review"Employing a restrained text, Curato mines the visuals for emotional impact…Young children will easily relate to Elliot’s experience of loneliness and his relief at inclusion, both convincingly captured in this elegant tale." - Kirkus Reviews

"…this picture book is warm and inviting. The illustrations are rich and interesting…The art creates an inviting atmosphere that draws readers in and keeps them lingering on each page, while the text tells an appealing story of family and friendship." - School Library Journal
