“Soffer’s books are interesting not only for their visual quality but for their witty and effortless humor. In a book market concerned first and foremost with conveying an educational message, , Soffer’s amusing approach is truly refreshing…Soffer’s characters are grouchy but funny, innocent yet sobered – thanks in large part to the ironic gap between the text and the illustrations.” – Israel Hayom
“A brilliant, funny, and wise book.” – Time Out Israel
