“Nothing is sumptuous for the 19th-century tenement-dwelling family at the heart of Brock Cole's endearing picture book ‘The Money We'll Save’ (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 40 pages, $16.99)…With Mr. Cole's watercolor-filled wobbly line drawings, we see the family—and soon their neighbors—struggling to accommodate the growing bird. Not a penny is saved, of course, but in the end the bird offers enrichment of a charmingly different sort.” --Wall Street Journal
“When Pa brings home a turkey poult to raise for Christmas dinner, hilarious complications ensue in this heartwarming family story set in 19th-century New York City.” --Kirkus Reviews, starred review
