“Readers of all ages will appreciate this layered tale and feel the poignancy of her decision to cease her questioning and live in the moment.”—Starred, Publishers Weekly“Thought-provoking and comforting, this selection leaves room for high-minded existential interpretation but still has an innocence that is childlike and accessible as it addresses the pleasures and pitfalls of growing up.” —Kirkus Reviews “There is a book for rumination, a rare permission to ask the unanswerable questions. The thoughts that propel it and the images that illuminate it make this volume a small wonder for children.” —School Library Journal
“Vibrant double-page spreads create a spacious setting for this peripatetic story of a young girl pondering a big question: ‘When will I get There?’ ” —Booklist
