"Long pays respectful homage to George and Doris Hauman's compositions in his visual interpretation of the classic tale of determination and perseverance…. Yet the artist adds a lushness to the spreads and injects even more personality into the characters…Both faithful fans and newcomers will enjoy this triumphant ride and eagerly climb aboard for repeat excursions." -Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Long has enriched this new edition with bountiful illustrations that take their palette and inspiration from the original, but are greatly enhanced by imagination and inventiveness….[T]his will travel proudly next to the one that first thought it could." -Kirkus Reviews, starred review
