"In a world the truth seems to be a rare commodity, Jonah Winter may be our modern-day Aesop, reminding us of the importance of joining together to insist that facts matter and to bring them to light. A simple yet utterly compelling story, appropriate for children and adults alike." (Read Brightly, "Most Exciting Picture Books of 2019") Read the review
"The combination of Jonah Winter’s direct and simple text, leavened with quite a bit of humor, and Pete Oswald’s signature colorful geometric forms (as seen recently in The Good Egg and The Bad Seed), here lost in a sea of falsehoods, forms the perfect vehicle for a ride towards the truth.... A fact is indeed a fact, and the sooner we can succeed in teaching that to our kids, and reminding ourselves of its power, the better the story will end for all of us."
