For a happy few of us there is the good fortune of having had a Mr. Sweet in our childhood. Someone who erases the boundaries between children and adults, whose praise makes us strong–and whose love teaches us what love really is. The luminous full-color paintings are alive with the tender joy of the story.
“The tender colors seem lit from within, creating a reverential mood that enhances the story’s compelling narrative. A loving remembrance of a common man whose humanity Walker makes memorable.”–Booklist
“Overflowing with compassion, humor, and good sense, [it is] a fine story of deep feeling.”–Kirkus Reviews
