    “The furniture and clothes in the softly colored digital illustrations project a late 1960s, early 1970s style. The child’s checked hat echoes the rainbow’s colors, connecting the two of them visually. This unusual friendship story is imaginative and poignant.” — Booklist

     


    “Washes of color and winking details mark this wistful, magical story about giving those we love the room that they need to grow.” — Foreword Reviews
