"Maurice Sendak, a friend of Ungerer's, thought him the most original children's book writer of his time." --Sunday Telegraph

"So strong and graphically interesting... It's art - illustration at the highest level." --The Times

"[A] style marked by great originality of illustrative technique, and a use of language that refused to patronise his young readers." --Dazed & Confused

"Watch the children, the subversive is back." --New York Times

"His ability to capture the absurd [...] and inject [...] subtle humour make this book a timeless classic." --Outside In

"The new editions look fresh and inviting, with creamy backdrop pages, crisp colors, and almost tangible textures." --School Library Journal

"Ungerer's artwork is distinguished by bright colors and his own distinctive style, and his stories are a beguiling mix of humour, wisdom and worthwhile messages." --Buffalo News

"A strange and hilarious fairy-tale adventure that will make nighttime kids guffaw out loud." --UrbanFamily

"[A] sweet, subversive, and lyrical tale." --Brain Pickings

"Beautiful and thoughtful... Can help children from all backgrounds understand what it means to seek refuge... The poor reception and mistreatment of the gentle protagonist in Tomi Ungerer's Moon Man (2009) when he arrives on earth serves as a cautionary tale. We learn among other things that society is only as humane and civilised as the degree to which it extends such principles to its most vulnerable members."--EAL (English as an Additional Language)
