Editorial Reviews

Booklist
Brightly illustrated.... Ohi's expressive drawings make Sprout's emotions as easily understandable as the straightforward plot.

Booklist - Carolyn Phelan
Human in all but their physical attributes, the characters are depictedin the cheerful line-and-watercolor art as dressed gerbils. Ohi's expressive drawings make Sprout's emotions as easily understandable as the straightforward plot. The target audience will find plenty to like and to identify with here.
