"This is a simple yet heartfelt story.” —School Library Journal, starred review
"Tender illustrations rendered in glowing hues capture Brian’s isolation deftly...Accessible, reassuring and hopeful." —Kirkus Reviews
"Ludwig and Barton understand classroom dynamics...They portray Brian’s situation as a matter of groupthink that can be rebooted through small steps. It’s a smart strategy, one that can be leveraged through the book’s excellent discussion guide."
"Trudy Ludwig has given us the gift of another empathic, poignant book for children that addresses the complex topic of peer relationships...A must-read."
—Carrie Goldman, award-winning author of BULLIED: What Every Parent, Teacher, and Kid Needs to Know about Ending the Cycle of Fear

Really interesting to see the author portray a child that feels isolated in such an easy to understand way for children. Would be a good book for bullies & victims because of the empathy it may generate. Sadly children can be affected by these feelings from nursery to reception & later. Good, positive ending. Hope to see more from this talented author & illustrator.
It is beautifully written and illustrated. This story is one that our children need to hear and learn the lesson of now! NO ONE DESERVES TO BE OVERLOOKED OR BE INVISIBLE!
I will always champion books like this!
