“Happy watercolors, wry humor and a fine sense of family will please weary young travelers—and their grandmas.” –Cleveland Plain Dealer
“DiSalvo’s watercolor illustrations bring to life Siegel’s self-assured protagonist and his journey from the wintery north to his grandmother’s arms.” –School Library Journal
“A wry and contemporary reality check on the going-to-Grandma's genre.” –Publishers Weekly
“Long-distance grandmothers everywhere will sympathize with Grandma as she searches for her lost smile in her grandson’s picture, among his toys and in his bedroom, just as they will rejoice in the pair’s loving reunion; those who read this may try a similar trick.” –Kirkus Reviews
“This picture book accurately reflects many kids’ experiences of airports, because it emphasizes the tedium of waiting as well as the long hallways, moving walkways, stairs, and escalators traversed. DiSalvo’s mixed-media illustrations capture the child’s experience with emotional warmth and rewarding attention to detail.” –Booklist
