Reviews

  Pure fantasy in the best sense.     –Kirkus Starred Review

The joy of Gong’s vibrantly colorful illustrations provide layers of dreamlike elements to pore over. Zhu’s message may be that love conquers distance or the post office endures, but it doesn’t matter; children will love Dandan’s fantastical journey.
