Product description


"Debuting author Pritchard’s sweet-natured storytelling makes a strong case for friendship’s resilience—and balancing capabilities—while Landy’s  digital cartooning and washlike textures have plenty of bounce and bubble." -- Publisher's Weekly ― June 2021

"Landy’s pic­tures are buoy­ant, with many bright col­ors against a back­ground of vio­let and rose hues....Young read­ers learn that per­son­al­i­ties may not be as fixed as they seem. The most elat­ed child, con­front­ed by dis­ap­point­ment, often feels as pow­er­less as Kvetch. On the oth­er hand, the grumpy lit­tle owl turns out to be capa­ble of change....Like Yid­dish itself, Kvetch is flex­i­ble. Dis­ap­point­ment can be trans­formed into new alter­na­tives. The fact that the book cen­ters this gen­tle les­son in the con­text of an ordi­nary child­hood event, not a moment of real trau­ma, is impor­tant. Kvetch the owl may not share Gitty’s intense sense of adven­ture, but he helps her to under­stand the impor­tance of hav­ing a friend." -- Association of Jewish Libraries

About the Author

Caroline Kusin Pritchard grew up as the youngest of four children in Dallas, Texas, and spent her childhood sneaking extra helpings of noodle kugel from her bubbe’s kitchen. She has worked across the education field, everything from teaching brilliant third graders to helping develop federal policy. Caroline lives in the Bay Area with her husband, three kiddos, and their 120-pound dog.

As soon as Ariel Landy learned how to draw a sky beyond a blue scribbled line, she knew she wanted to be an illustrator. Raised on coloring books and crayons outside of Boston, she now lives in France with her husband and dog. Visit her online at
