"Morris is a complex character whose creativity and personality shine. . . . Sensitive and reassuring." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"[R]ather than presenting an overt message about gender identity, the book provides a subtle and refreshing glimpse at a boy who simply likes to dress up." -- School Library Journal

"Baldacchino doesn't sugar-coat the teasing and isolation Morris endures. . . . Malenfant showcases Morris's full emotional spectrum." -- Publishers Weekly

"Unlike some more messagey titles on the subject, this one provides Morris with a personality beyond his dress-loving nature, making him enjoyable literary company." -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Baldacchino's gentle story sensitively depicts gender nonconforming children, offering them reassurance and, one hopes, acceptance by introducing other children to the concept." -- Booklist
