"A truly riparian book, with surging rapids and reflective pools, challenging whitewater and quiet sunny coves. Its denizens are thorny, believable, and sympathetic, it solutions authentically untidy. Use ... as a lure for young readers." --Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, starred review
