Art lovers of all ages will find this charming read-aloud as delicious a treat as a serving of creme brulee.
--Kirkus Reviews

Fans, foodies, and Francophiles will be beguiled.
--Publishers Weekly

Soft and lovely watercolor illustrations... [A]n affectionate story of a young boy away from home.

The simple yet elegant narrative makes this a compelling choice for reading aloud while the relationship between Amandine and Yannick is likely to resonate with middle-graders who are besotted with their cooler teenage elders. Place's frequent monochromatic, mixed-media illustrations are as clear and refined as the text and bring to life the French countryside of the 1960s. This might be useful in conjunction with an art class or a unit on artists, or hand it to the kids who love to draw more than they love to read--they'll appreciate both the artistic connection and the brevity of the book.
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Morpurgo's short story provides readers with an ironic twist that will lead to interesting discussion. Place's b&w illustrations add details to the storyline that give readers a feeling of being part of the French countryside. Art teachers and art enthusiasts will find this to be an amusing fast read.
--Library Media Connection

[An] inspirational, beautifully illustrated book.
