"Poster's stirring black-and-white illustrations of brushed-on graphite powder, pencil, and eraser on paper glow with starlight . . . Short, descriptive phrases capture the thrill of the adventure for Dog, pulling the reader into breathless excitement." —Booklist
“The striking thing about this story is the unusual black-and-white illustrations that are created using brushed graphite powder, pencil, and erasure on paper. Their soft, atmospheric mood and their design and distribution—full-bleed double-page spreads, single-page bleeds, and, particularly, a few stellar sequences in which multiple iterations of characters denote action—show author/illustrator Poster’s skill in telling a story with pictures.” —Kirkus
“Through the soft drawings, she captures the illumination of the moonlight effectively, giving the animals a ghostly quality. Multiple spreads add to the cinematic storytelling . . . Luminescent illustrations and dramatic storytelling turn one night of moonlit play into an exceptional story.” —School Library Journal
