"Gore’s cheery palette, delicately textured rendering, and expert pacing show...a skilled illustrator.... He makes it seem like there’s a lot more going on than initially meets the eye—kind of like Nick himself."
"The father-daughter creative team's little mouse family is warm and sweet.... The lively acrylic illustrations are rendered in soft, clear colors on a lightly textured background and move speedily across double-page spreads. Treacle and honey are assiduously avoided, leaving gentle reassurance for self-doubting little readers.
Charming, encouraging, and delightful. Go, Nick!"
