Review:

“Amid the cheery storytelling and dear illustrations, the very straightforward scariness surrounding solitude and self-reliance surfaces, along with some coping strategies. . . This jaunty little elephant provides a mammoth lesson for young readers about bravery, grit and fortitude.” -- STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews

“Throughout Pomelo’s Big Adventure, a gentle spirit of exploration leads the protagonist and the reader onward. Oversize pages filled with Mr. Chaud’s witty, bright drawings that pop amid white pages reflect the elephant’s sense of curiosity and openness to possibilities.” -- New York Journal of Books

“Someone goes on a journey” is one of the guiding precepts of narrative; “Are we there yet?” is one of the guiding precepts of childhood. . . like all terrific books, they’re reasons enough to travel.” - - Daniel Handler, The New York Times Book Review

“Pomelo will teach your child that taking risks may be scary, ah but the rewards may be very great. The illustrations are so spectacular in a most enchanting way, and when you read the story while looking at the big two-page spreads, your heart will fill with joy.” – Smart Books for Smart Kids

“Badescu conveys the nervousness and anxiety that can come with traveling solo, and tiny, pink Pomelo remains a quirky, comic hero.” – Publishers Weekly
