Praise for Hondo and Fabian

"The spare, spot-on text is the perfect complement to the artist's warm and satisfying soft-focus artwork."--School Library Journal
 
"The basic language allows children to elaborate on the story from their own experience and imagination. The large type size means this book will function well as a transitional book as your child starts to recognize words and practices reading. Parents will enjoy the vintage feel of Peter McCarty’s exquisite pencil illustrations while children will respond to the loveable animals."--Armchair Interviews
