"Tender and poignant . . . Drawn skilfully and freely in pen and ink, washed with shades of blue and terracotta, the pictures are full of events and details beyond the story, and depict the rooftops, the restaurants and the light of Italy in a way that makes you long to be there." (Nicolette Jones The Sunday Times)
"Macaulay refuses to be confined by the conventions of the picture book." (Booklist)
"Unassuming but affecting, this tale of friendship is bound to be popular with a wide audience." (The Bulletin)
"The warm, offbeat story of camaraderie and nurturing is told in subtly humorous, succinct text, but it's Macaulay's winning illustrations that steal the show." (Booklist)
"These intricate drawings are suffused with soft autumnal colours that perfectly complement the beautiful story." (The New York Times Book Review)
