Brooke Y. of the Salt Lake City Public Library: "it was a great story and helped make a dreary day slightly less dark and boring"
Boone from The Trouble With Normal: "this mini book is a short and sweet read. it is a cautionary tale involving a fly, a dreamer, a trade of a wheel for honey and what envelops from these initial plans. within the story themes of missed oppurtunities, greed, regret et al are woven in without being preachy or condescending to the reader. the result is a tale that can be a good read for kids without talking down to them. it's an admittedly brief read, but one that reveals more than one might think. this is something worth checking out."
Chris from Slug and Lettuce: "this is a short little fable stoy about a fly with a wheel and a dreamer with a bucket of honey and the trade they ty to make. it's short and self described as all ages. it's put together like a mini-book. cute. and brief."
