"Both the text and the art encourage empathy for the bighearted but vulnerable bear, while suggesting the importance of speaking up for someone in distress. ... A heartening picture book."
"Clever type design makes for easy reading, while lots of pictorial action adds drama to this
tale that gently reminds readers not to judge by outward appearances. ... A sweet tale of a
beloved bear defeating the tyranny of others’ expectations."
-- Kirkus Reviews
