"A power tussle between two kids plays out through mischievous drawings....Eva, who’s Asian, and Sam, who’s black, are full of movement, their postures and facial expressions different on every spread. When their mural becomes frantic and out of hand, the kids escape in a way that Crockett Johnson’s Harold would be proud of." - Kirkus Reviews, July 17, 2017

"Ohi (Where Are My Books?) celebrates creativity and cooperation in this story of two young artists...Ohi paints the children in grayscale, letting the vivid, colorful chaos of their mural-in-progress reflect the intensity of their feelings and wildness of their imaginations." - Publishers Weekly, August 14, 2017

"Why we chose it: This sweet story about the power of teamwork promises to be both imaginative and funny. Toronto-based artist Debbie Ridpath Ohi is the author of Where Are My Books? and has illustrated several Judy Blume books." - CBC Books, "10 Picture Books You'll Want To Check Out This Fall"
