  • A masterpiece-certainly of children's literature, but maybe of all literature. It is Steig at his absolute best.

    Rumaan Alam, The New Yorker
  • There is no question that Steig's affectionately witty pictures and perfectly complementary narration make this a durable picture book friendship

    Kirkus Reviews
  • A simple, matter-of-fact story about the friendship between a mouse and a whale. . . . Lovely watercolor pictures and a funny, well-written text which presents its plot coincidences in tongue-in-cheek manner fit together admirably in this faintly Aesopian tale

    School Library Journal
  • The book is funny and earnest, pellucid and profound

    New York Times Book Review
