"The spirited story is beautifully written but subtle and esoteric, and young children may need an adult's help in puzzling out its mystical elements. The striking, skillful paper-cut illustrations, however, create a vivid sense of place and do much to explain and extend the story's action." Booklist
"Excellent for the classroom and a useful addition to any library." Kirkus
"Seamlessly constructed, the tale finds its match in Sogabe's eye-catching art. Her bold, confident lines and sophisticated shades combine the vigor of woodcuts with the delicacy of watercolor." Publisher's Weekly
