“A girl with a spiky ponytail (no golden locks in sight) finds her way to a forest home inhabited by three rhinos… [T]he expressive faces of the rhinos and the heedless child, rendered with energy and vibrant color, enliven the story… Ample white space and subtle font-size adjustments, which amplify big and small, play nicely with Rankin’s illustrations.” — Publishers Weekly
