  • *"This is a book made for storytime, with its bold mixed-media illustrations that work almost like a storyboard moving left to right...The happy ending, almost a reverse of Where the Wild Things Are, includes everyone discovering the fun of being at least a little bit wild."
    ( The Horn Book, starred review ).

  • *"There's a lot to go wild for in this picture-book celebration of individuality and self-expression...Hooray for Mr. Tiger and his wild ways." ( Kirkus, starred review ).

  • *"Readers who prefer the view from underneath the dinner table will find a kindred soul in Brown's brightly burning character who knows that the wilderness is always waiting, should the need arise."
    ( Publishers Weekly, starred review ).

  • *"This "it's okay to be different" story stands out from other picture books on the topic thanks to Brown's delightfully clever illustrations and masterful compositions...Sure to be an instant read-aloud classic in classrooms and libraries." ( School Library Journal, starred review ).

  • *"With its skewed humor and untamed spirit this joyous exploration of quasi-reverse anthropomorphism will delight listeners again and again." ( Booklist, starred review ).

  • "Peter Brown depicts his hero as a bright pop of orange...gleefully escaping to a Rousseau-like tableau of dense ferns, soaring palms and cascading waterfalls."
    ( New York Times Book Review ).

  • Praise for YOU WILL BE MY FRIEND!:

    "Finding a friend is less a matter of sheer will than quiet acceptance in this charming new work...Handlettered speech balloons and wood borders give the book a rustic but friendly feel, with endpapers that should not be missed."
    (Kirkus Reviews).

  • "I click with this book. Brown has pushed his style past its smoother beginnings...into a  homemade hybrid of pencil and construction paper and even wood. Who knows how he does it, really? The appeal of YOU WILL BE MY FRIEND! is as deep a mystery as friendship, but I'm not interested in delving into its mysteries. I just want to take it to lunch." (Daniel Handler in The New York Times).

    "...a quietly marvellous picture book... Echoing the themes of The Secret Garden, it is an ecological fable, a whimsical tale celebrating perseverance and creativity." (The New York Times Book Review).

  • * "Brown's latest is a quiet but stirring fable of urban renewal, sure to capture imaginations." (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

  • * "The art is spectacular and the book might inspire children to engage in small projects to improve their own neighborhoods." (School Library Journal, starred review).
