"A heartwarming story about accepting others for who they are, no strings attached; it celebrates the fun that ensues when you do."—Foreword Reviews

 

"Underneath the Martian theme, this bubbly fable by Noble embraces being oneself as, far from frightening others, Marty finds out that he doesn’t have to hide."

—Publishers Weekly

 

"A charming story of acceptance, friendship and finding home."—BookPage

 

"Bound to invoke more than a few laughs. . . The outlandishness of the story contributes to the fun."

—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“[InOver the Moon,] a girl raised by wolves sets out on her own. In addition to being beautiful, the pictures are often hilarious… The text is stark and lyrical, and Proimos is particularly adept at using poetic devices like repetition to make the words sing. A weird and wonderful tale.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Abbott’s soft, cartoon illustrations perfectly match and set the tone. [Over the Moon] is a zany twist on an age-old tale of growing up and realizing that family means the ones who choose, love, and raise you.”
—School Library Journal

“Saying someone must have been raised by wolves is usually a slam. In this engrossing picture book, however, it’s a way of showing that love is what counts in any family, no matter how nontraditional.”
—Booklist

★ "...more a celebration of love than sadness over a death."―STARRED REVIEW, Katrina Yurenka, Youth Services Book Review

 

"...Soft, brightly colored spreads by Abbott (Twindergarten) make Finn’s energy and resilience clear and use unusual perspectives to amplify the emotion in the words. The moment when Finn discovers the feather is presented as an aerial shot, seen from the place where, perhaps, he feels Hamish may be.... Combined, the art and story create a useful, moving resource for bereaved children and their families. Ages 4–8. (June)"

-Publisher's Weekly

"[…] Easy to read words combined with graceful artwork from Zoey Abbott completes a work which is both significant and poignant and perfect for children struggling to understand the process of death and grieving." ―Blue Wolf Reviews

"The episode is less about grieving the loss of a loved one than finding positive ways to remember and to regard the deceased." ―Kirkus Reviews
