There she sketches and dreams, but her comfortable routine is interrupted when a letter flutters through the mail slot one day. A warm and wondrous adventure for armchair, or high chair, travelers.” (Booklist, starred review)
“Na’s latest offering is exquisite all around. His illustrations are clever and fun, simple and clean, yet multifaceted and layered. Each green carrot top is delightfully wriggly and unique, and the texture of the carrot skin is spot-on. The animals are adorably anthropomorphized and have clear personality.” (School Library Journal, starred review)
