    “This comical story upends reader expectations and is perfect for group sharing. Its one-dimensional, thick-lined illustrations are positioned on simple backgrounds, often a solid color, which allows young readers to stay focused on Bruno’s antics. A sweet concluding scene draws this entertaining story about individuality and friendship to a close.”

    Julia Smith, The Booklist Reader

     

    Peter, the standing cat is as funny as charming and it is also fun to read… Plus, the book can be used to show the richness of difference and the importance of adopting various points of view when we face the norm.”

    Isabelle Jameson, Campagne pour la lecture

     

    “Nadine Robert offers us a sensitive take on the strong relation that a child can have with an animal, showing that it can become the best companion to spend time.”

    Marie Fradette, Le Devoir

     

    “This great story about friendship will provide crazy, sweet reading pleasures to the ones who will read it or even tell it.”

    Marie-Hélène Vaugeois, Librairie Vaugeois (Québec)
