"Simple prose and spare scenes successfully convey desert ecology through the experiences of a humble 'tumble.'" --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Bergstrom's story is told in short, rhyming couplets paired with rich, earthy illustrations. ...Dusted with a hint of whimsy, this playful primer on desert life is perfect for all libraries."--School Library Journey, starred review
