"There are so many great themes to explore and discuss in this story including teamwork, leadership, problem-solving, resilience, different diets and preferences. The book is entertaining and vibrant and detailed illustrations by Anna Demchenko and the fun rhyming couplets by Dhana Fox work well together to create meaning."
