Raves and Reviews

"A gentle story of calm courage and of quiet, trusting perseverance that will comfort readers in their anxious times." -- Kirkus

– Kirkus Reviews, October 15, 2017

"The team behind If I Had a Little Dream imagines a journey of ocean exploration as a boy and giraffe set off in a small wooden boat. ...Castrillon’s images convey an underlying tranquility that carries readers along with the explorers. It’s a voyage they’ll want to take again. " -- Publishers Weekly

– Publishers Weekly, November 13, 2017

"In lilting rhymes and lush, jewel-toned illustrations, Laden and Castrillon deliver an imaginative adventure through stormy seas.... Castrillon’s beautifully surreal artwork is captivating. Each scene is full of imaginative sea creatures, crashing waves, blue-green tendrils of rain, and moonlit skies, all rendered in swirling organic shapes and lines and a dense palette of saturated tones....the artwork is so gorgeous, and the wind-down conclusion, wherein the travelers are welcomed home, might make this a nice pick for bedtime.
