Paterson Prize Honor Book (2014)
Society of Illustrators"The Original Art" annual exhibition (2013) Silver Medal
2013 IndieFab Awards Silver Winner in Picture Books
Publishers Weekly (STARRED review)
"This simple, graceful, and even majestic meditation reflects on the beauty and strength of familiar animals. . . . With poetic language and paintings that carry something close to the impact of icons, Zoboli and Mulazzani offer an attitude of reverence for the natural world."
 
Booklist (STARRED review)
"Books inviting children to imagine themselves as animals are ubiquitous and a playful way to encourage imagination, but most don't have the scope of this beautiful Italian import. There is a dignified eloquence at work here, and the narrator's wishes are not merely the desire of a child to be like an animal, but a longing for a tangible connection to an often intangible universe. . . . This is a book of big ideas, sparingly told, and full of wonder."
