The New York TimesHow refreshing to find a story in which a parent makes a mistake without being turned into a goonish caricature. Children need to know grown-ups make mistakes too; it helps validate their own trial-and-error trajectory. And Egan makes this point felt in an organic way, without pointing it out didactically. Yaccarino's retro illustrations are charming and full of kick. They bear a welcome resemblance to the simple dot-eyed figures of Roy McKie and P.D. Eastman's Snow.
