Praise For…


"Feng's artwork is lovely, stylized flora and fauna filling the pages, and the love between the two is evident."

— Kirkus Reviews

"Using allusions to nature, Wheeler writes lyrically about what a hug can be . . . Detailed art by Feng has a retro feel. The ornamentlike abundance of insects, flowers, and other natural objects brushes this familial journey with magic."

— Publishers Weekly

"Vivid illustrations portray a sumptuous environment, using many shades of green. The images invite readers to consider the settings from varying perspectives, from sweeping landscapes to extreme close-ups. The juxtaposition of the family affection and scientific information is unusual and effective."

— Booklist
