Starred Review, School Library Journal, September 2011:
"...this ingenious foray into breaking into a new neighborhood makes for an amusing and appealing story."
Starred Review, Booklist, October 15, 2011:
"The story’s simple charm comes to life in Juster’s well-paced, spare language. Karas’ deft mixed-media sketches carry remarkable weight. A harmonious blend of text and illustration, this is a warm, reassuring choice for all children who know the anxieties that come with big life changes."
