"Bleck's playful paintings are a literal bright spot, with nearly every scene featuring a yellow full moon amid a purple-blue nighttime sky.Publisher's Weekly review of The Moon Shines Down
"In this takeoff on Aesop's fable, city-dweller Jack can't wait to visit his cousin Adam in the 'burbs . . . The author and illustrator do a great job of showing how a slightly different perspective still yields the same fun for the boys. The full-color, slightly flattened, retro cartoon illustrations 'using gouache and at least 10 brushes' perfectly capture the changing scenes, and readers will agree that it's tough to decide which experience-city or suburbis more fun."School Library Journal review of The City Kid and the Country Kid
