Daniel HandlerExpecting a classic from Burningham is like expecting one from Beethoven—he's already given us plenty—but with It's a Secret! he outdoes even Mr. Gumpy's Outing…the book is everything you want in a journey—a familiar face, a grave danger, tricky maneuvers, elegant delectables, some trail marks so you know you can find your way home and, yes, a wonderful secret, which like all good secrets points to more secrets and the big, dark secret world in which we live. It's a Secret! is a perfect night, one that knows when to give a party and when to stay silent…and Burningham, in plot and in painting, knows when to color in the lines and when to leave them stark and empty.
