"The best part of this collaboration between the longtime editor and the Caldecott Medalist is the playfulness that oozes from Jackson’s well-chosen words and the warmth of Pinkney’s artwork. There’s one thing that’s never missing from this gentle story about a special bond between the generations, and that’s the love Grandpa and Sophie have for each other."—Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A fabulous family story with something for the young and old alike."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"This appealing story about a dynamic intergenerational relationship is large enough to share with a group, but individual children will want to pore over the art to spot all of the details in plain sight."—School Library Journal, starred review

"This makes a good one-on-one read aloud for those not quite ready for Martin Handford’s Where’s Waldo? series."—Booklist
