Reviews

"[An] instant classic. McClintock's illustrations . . . evoke the world of children's books our grandmothers handed down, by Randolph Caldecott or Emile Gaillard." --The New York Times Book Review

"Simon is a lucky kid--and so are the ones whose parents share this lovely book with them." --The Los Angeles Times

"The story is droll; the pen-and-ink drawings, glorious." --Entertainment Weekly

"McClintock's story is fun to read, and her illustrations, rich with autumn colors and scenes, make this book a standout." --Scripps Howard News Service

"The illustrations are nonpareil." --The Miami Herald

"Muted old-world watercolors pay homage to a great city and a special relationship at the dawn of the 20th century." --The San Francisco Chronicle

"A gifted artist offers gorgeous pen-and-ink watercolor drawings of early 20th century Paris." --Buffalo News

"Parents will hunt for excuses to borrow this one." --St. Louis-Post Dispatch

"McClintock's beautifully restrained use of color may evoke a long-ago time, but her compositions are so dynamic there's always something for contemporary children to discover." --Starred, Booklist

"Delightful . . . as enjoyable as a chocolate croissant." --Starred, Kirkus Reviews

"McClintock scores a double coup, creating a must-see for francophiles and an engaging hide-and-seek game for homebodies." --Starred, Publishers Weekly

"A beautiful example of bookmaking, with plenty to charm children, this is a visual delight." --School Library Journal

"With its cozy, Kate Greenaway flavor and many minutiae to discover, this will be especially nice to share one on one." --The Horn Book
