“This deceptively simple book contains so much in its gentle black-and-white story and the personality of little Pablo—cosy at home, shy of the world, but in the end too curious not to step outside and take a look.” Julia Marshall, Publisher Julia Marshall, Publisher

"Though the images may be black and white, Pablo is no black-and-white character. There is an endearing complexity to this cute little chick... Delightful—will surely bring smiles to readers’ faces." Starred review
*Kirkus Reviews*

"I loved this cute book!...The illustrations are very minimalist with simple black and white art, until the last page when we get to see Pablo’s fluffy yellow feathers. I love the art style! I think it’s very effective." Starred review
*Luminous Libro*

"Bold, simple, stylized art plays with perception, as the crisp black and white Pablo as an egg, yields a soft, fuzzy yellow Pablo as a hatched chick. I like also how the senses come in to play as he hatches – there are onomatopoeia for the first sounds he hears. A clever book."
*Youth Services Book Review*

"This excellent picture book is simplicity itself but it covers a whole lot of ground."
*Bobs Book Blog*

"Rascal has created a simple book that offers more than what a readers sees at face value."
*Mr Alex's Bookshelf*

"Kids will love turning the book sideways and upside down to use their imaginations and discover what’s there. When adorable Pablo finally emerges from his shell, the pop of yellow is sure to bring “Awww!”s and requests to read the book again."
*Celebrate Picture Books*

"Using a palette of mainly black and white, Rascal uses a sweet and simple story to explore themes of uncertainty and new experiences, with some subtle learning about shapes, direction and senses thrown in too."
*The Scotsman*

"It is Rascal’s clever illustrations with their simple layers that really help the chick to capture the young reader’s heart. Even the endpapers are a visual delight."
*The Irish Times*
