"Nordqvist s illustrations are packed with inviting detail, and
Pettson and Findus s testy but tender relationship is as enjoyable
as the broad, goofy humor that runs through the story."- Publishers
"The expressive ink drawings, washed with bright colors, are full of lively details."-Booklist, Carolyn Phelan
"The wholesome story and quirky characters make this a great read-aloud...Nordqvist uses saturated colors, clean lines, and a million tiny details to bring the story to life."-School Library Journal, Sally james
