      A book of the utmost comfort and daydream-drift. I love this book so much, I wish I were the richest woman in the world and could buy a copy for anyone who needs a picture-book comfort boost.

      From France via New Zealand, a surreal or, perhaps, metaphorical journey, rich in surprises.

    4. Midwest Book Review

      Young readers will delight in delving ever deeper into each page and will always remember what’s in the suitcase!

    5. Youth Services Book Review

      As in any good fairy tale quest, each of the seemingly mismatched items plays an important role, if our hero is able to puzzle it out. Readers will delight as each flap reveals more secret flaps and the story rolls on with suspenseful cliffhangers. Sometimes, the text asks questions and attentive readers will enjoy shouting out the answers.
