“Batya Gur’s repeated manipulation of surprising and wonderful images is delightful. Although she sometimes joins the children in making good-natured fun of some of the grown-ups, she never fails to take the children, as readers, completely serious.” – Berner Zeitung

“A very respectable entry into the world of children’s literature by Batya Gur.” – Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
