Prof. Picturebook says:
'Eastman's simple, wide-eyed protagonist never fails to capture our hearts as he embarks on a quest to find his mother. Along the way he catches a glimpse of the sometimes frightening yet always fascinating world around him. Buy this book for a mother of a college student who is about to 'leave the nest,' and she will remember with a tearful smile how small and helpless we all once were."
Dr. Scarpuppy says:
"If I were that bird, I would have accepted the steam shovel as my mother and together we would have dominated the entire forest!"
