"Illuminating this complex world through the eyes of the canaries that are employed to protect workers is a charming and inventive concept. Happily, Bitty and his mates are often sweet and funny, as their lives inevitably intertwine with the human miners. . . . Endearing and original"--Kirkus Reviews

"Rosenberg's richly imagined canaries show profound understanding of the world in showing how to honor sacrifices by trying to reform the conditions that engendered the sacrifice. It would work well with a unit on Woody Guthrie, labor unions, or other social history topics."--VOYA

"Bitty is a sweet character who will appeal to both boys and girls, and his story is adventurous enough to keep readers' interest."--Library Media Connection
