KIRKUS REVIEW

The artist has created a distant world of misted ocean and island by using soft blue greens and greys in the clear, serene pictures. Mr. Freeman proves that he is equally at ease with words: the descriptions are terse and startling; the brief dialogue blends into the text. Listeners will enjoy the leisurely, drifting friendship of Dove and Turtle, the interlude of family-raising, and the eventual multi-Dove-Turtle reunion. The book is a fine example of an artist at work without strong color.
