Reviewed by Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite (5 stars): A Real Treasure! ... delightful little fantasy stories told in rhyming verse. The illustrations are spectacular and certainly help carry along each story. Filled with a little touch of humor, each story also teaches young readers important lessons: don't let others dictate your pleasures; work hard to achieve success in music, in sports or in anything else; don't take what isn't yours and then try to hide your error; stand up for what you believe in; and don't cheat. This is a great, charming collection of stories for young children. A real treasure. *** Reviewed by Patricia Reding for Readers' Favorite (five stars): Good Tales to Share With Children !

Along the way, Dan and Paul both learn about appreciating other people's skills and abilities, and realize that cheating, no matter how innocent, is never a way to win a gold medal. Joanna Pasek's watercolor illustrations are gloriously colored and perfectly synchronized with the stories. Each panel is lovingly crafted and detailed, and I found myself captivated by each of them.

This is the perfect winter story selection and it's most highly recommended. *** From the Moonbeam Awards Judges Panel: "Adorable characters, with great illustrations..." "Clever, fun and wholesome. Good writing and good illustration." ***
