★ "This poignant yet lighthearted affirmation asserts the uniqueness of each individual and reassures readers that while life is complex, sometimes messy, and even occasionally catastrophic, it is all part of the journey. While the topic may seem a bit mature or daunting for very young readers, the story has such quirky sparkle that even if readers don't quite get its meaning, they will be delighted with its sense of playfulness."
—Kirkus, starred review
"Visionary and unique, this is the sort of book one could never predict, but one whose resonance is impossible to deny."
"A sophisticated allegory for the curveballs life lobs and the way we respond, it’s tailor-made for family conversations."
