Reviews

"A welcome modern tale of immigration featuring a Thai protagonist."-Kirkus Reviews

"Picture books about families moving abound, but this one is different. Krit isn't just missing familiar people and places, he's missing his culture, and his happy ending springs from adopting a different outlook as well as finding a friend. In the illustrations, bright colors contrast with shades of gray, often reflecting changes in mood as the story progresses. A helpful new slant on an old theme. "-Booklist
