Modan’s beautifully expressive clear-line cartoons work well in a story for children, and the story itself has just the right twists for new readers to enjoy and maybe even hazard a chance of predicting...Another winner from TOON.

The sparse, effective dialogue works seamlessly with the colorful, detailed pictures to tell this simple but engaging story. Various panel sizes perfectly pace the story’s sequences. Modan, an award-winning illustrator and graphic novelist, skillfully depicts Maya’s sensitivity and spiritedness through keenly drawn facial expressions and body movements...Young readers will devour the visual details and cheer on Maya as she asserts her individuality.
