"Gay's illustrations, done primarily in watercolors with a touch of paper collage, are bright and have a whimsical touch." — School Library Journal, starred review

"Her freewheeling ink-and-watercolor illustrations are delightful, and it's obvious from the knowing text that she has listened to conversations between kids. Stella and Sam, so different, relish their respective roles and obviously love one another; they always seem to find something to share in their circumscribed but ever-intriguing world." — Booklist
