"Two friends briefly come into conflict and then resolve it in this sweet drama that is played out entirely in dialogue...Ruzzier frames this little play within simple compositions, allowing emotions plenty of room...Charming."--Kirkus Reviews
"Cohen's text carries just the right degree of force, and Ruzzier uses line and color effectively in his drawings to convey the small world in which the witch and the goblin live. Readers will easily recognize themselves in this duo."--Publishers Weekly
