Publishers Weekly, "Children’s Books Exploring the Refugee Crisis" - Natasha Gilmore

School Library Journal, "9 Nonfiction Series for Back-to-School Reading" - Della Farrell

"Ventura’s narrative follows Kunkush and the amazing network of people who worked to bring him back to his owners. Guo’s graphic design–like artwork is suffused with light and shadow, blues and oranges. . . .should work well in a small group or one-on-one setting." - School Library Journal, "9 Nonfiction Series for Back-to-School Reading"

Booklist - Carolyn Phelan

"...the artwork is distinctive, and the appealing story provides an engaging introduction to the refugee experience. This handsome series both dramatizes and personalizes history through the experiences of individuals." - Booklist
