“This sweet, small and simple German import will probably make children, especially girls, smile.... The gentle undercurrent of the search for a soul mate should resonate with even very young children, and the glorious dandelions, snails, raspberries and apple blossoms deserve repeated visits.”
—Kirkus Book Reviews
“This story will suit small children who crave a safe world in the comfort of a floral abundance of warm and inviting watercolor illustrations.”
