"Twig's adjustment to a new school rings true; half-page illustrations appear every five pages or so to nicely break up the reading; the language is natural; and Jacobson’s repeated use of bulleted lists helps group multiple ideas. Twig’s engaging narration introduces characters many newly independent readers will want to know better." —The Horn Book
"Readers will find Twig and Turtle delightful, coping with their unusual and interesting obstacles with determination and great resourcefulness. . . . comforting and reassuring, with problems neatly tied up and solved."—Kirkus Reviews
