STARRED REVIEW "The design of the book, along with Badel's illustrations—two-page spreads in which a complete page of elegantly wonky watercolor artwork bleeds into the opposite text page—gives the story an exceptional sense of flow. Drake is pudgily adorable, and the humans...have a Quentin Blake-esque air to them. One of those modest efforts that throws off more light than one might expect from the humble glow of its parts."
