Product description


“A great book to begin discussions about telling the truth and how keeping secrets can have a negative impact.”

-- Youth Services Book Review, 12/31/19 ― Youth Services Book Review, 12/31/19

“Hutchins and Herbert’s text is vivid, specific, and evocative; Petričić’s pencil-and-watercolor illustrations have a fun, cartoonish quality that perfectly suits the story, investing the nominally inanimate toy with a huge personality . . . Another child’s toy gained by mischance is a perfect vehicle for gently conveying the importance of honesty.” 

-- Kirkus Reviews, 01/21/20 ― Kirkus Reviews, 01/21/20

“A wonderful adventure of childish imagination, with, at its core, an important idea about how dishonesty can spoil a beautiful thing. The book should find a place in many schools and public library picture book collections. Highly Recommended.” 

-- CM Reviews, 02/14/20 ― CM Reviews, 02/14/20

“Believable, relatable, and tender.” 

Kiss the Book Jr., 04/17/20

“Hutchins and Herbert have created a complex, memorable character . . . This galloping story will engage young readers and prompt meaningful conversation.” 

Canadian Children’s Book News, Spring/20
