“The bright illustrations are entertaining even though they introduce characters who have difficult underlying issues. … It has a light touch but carefully respects young children’s dignity and their need and ability to make thoughtful choices.” ―Reading Time (Australia)
“Recommended. … There is an element of humor in the manner in which the children problem-solve to select the favoured counsellor, and the illustrator has a suitable quirky, naive style.” ―ReadPlus (U.K.)
“Tilly has a problem in her life and does not know where to turn for help. With sprightly, purple pigtails and colorful, mismatched fashion, Tilly looks like a joyful young tot. But something is making her sad and worried. Exemplary points for tackling a tough issue.” —Kirkus Reviews
