Thank you, Kirkus, for SHY's first review!
Someone extremely shy finds a friend...
Freedman’s fine pencil lines, graceful animals, superb compositions, and spare text are virtuosic, but the backgrounds are the soul of Shy’s tale: breathtaking watercolor washes blend hues softly from one section of the natural color spectrum to another, opaquely connoting desert, mountains, skies, dawn, and night.
An exquisite treasure for bashful readers, animal lovers, and anyone who’s ever wanted a friend.
