Praise for this book:

'This picture book from the launch list of Scallywag Press demonstrates how much can be done with few words and simple pictures. The images, using washes, texture, collage and autumnal colours, express emotion succinctly. The book also has a wider resonance: about demonising strangers, preconceived ideas and the folly of a wall.' Sunday Times Culture Children's Book of the Week

'In one of the most powerful picture books of the year so far, Jon Agee makes us question the perceived order of things in this smart, timely and playful tale.' The Scotsman

'An instantly classic feel. It is one of the first books from new publishing house Scallywag Press, and a promise of fine things to come in 2019.' The Irish Times

'A very topical book that will nonetheless be of perennial interest for illustration fans and those looking for a thought-provoking, simple book about relating to others.' Booktrust website

'This book should be in every classroom from kindergarten to college because it is never too soon, or too late, to start questioning 'certainties' about ourselves, and issues of divisions in society.' Just Imagine
