    1. Otago Daily Times

      This is a gentle story about supportive friendships and the importance of protecting vulnerable creatures, and it comes with a strong anti-bullying message. It’s a nice introduction for children to how they can use their own moral compasses to decide what is good and bad behaviour.

    2. Diane Neylon, Youth Services Book Review (US)

      [I would] recommend this book for mature children that enjoy thoughtful books, programs that deal with bullies.

Available worldwide from your local bookstore or online.
