"A charming, emotionally resonant exploration of the oh-so-important concept of "best friend."" - Kirkus Reviews

"Friendship bliss, anticipation, hurt feelings, homesickness—all are familiar to (human) kids and are all conveyed with respect and sensitivity." - The Horn Book

"Sensitive to the challenges of three-person friendships, the well-written text dramatizes Sophie’s emotions with perception and precision. Created with gouache paints, the illustrations make good use of white space and dark, shadowy grays as well as bright colors." - Booklist

"A great read-aloud and a gentle way to help children consider the idea of expanding their circles of friends." - School Library Journal
