"Plenty of children will find the notion of having a whole house to themselves an appealing one, but both the plot line and stylish detailing in the finely drawn pencil and gouache illustrations suggest that Abbott may have a broader audience in mind from the start. A tongue-in-cheek foray for independent sorts—not necessarily younger ones."  ― Kirkus Reviews

"...the duo stands out as evidence, proof that there are sometimes new characters in children's literature who seem to have been there forever...the charming and timeless allure of [Abbott's] two animals shows that she has assimilated the beauty of readings from the past. With their slender legs like 60s chair legs and their candid mimicry of the childish heroes of that era, Pig and Horse display a very retro plump grace. But their ability to analyze their emotions makes them more contemporary, and this big gap in time makes them very endearing acrobats of introspection." — Marine Landrot of Telerama (translated from the French)

"The protagonists are a model of supportive friendship, and there’s great appeal in the idea that dealing with darker emotions doesn’t require bravery as much as it does a smart plan and a good pal." — Publishers Weekly

"Both animals, drawn standing upright with rosy cheeks, are appealing and accessible protagonists who evoke some of the great friendships of children’s literature. Gentle and effective."  ― Kirkus Reviews

"Whether an endorsement for exposure therapy or a reassurance that fears are better handled with a friend over tea, this story has consolation to offer to the easily scared." ―The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"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."

“[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
