'Satisfying and beautifully illustrated.'
-- The Wall Street Journal

'Lindgren's affection for Karl warms the tale of his heroism.'
-- Kirkus Reviews

'The charm and success of this traditional tale lie in Lindgren's masterful storytelling. Törnqvist's delicate, expressive watercolors accentuate the personalities of the farm folk and add suspense to Goran's plight. The artist's clever use of the endpapers to show a line of villagers looking apprehensively toward the story beckons readers just as effectively as Lindgren's words. The message that simple kindness is often an act of extraordinary bravery makes this a must for most collections.'
-- School Library Journal

'This story has a touching message about kindness and not underestimating people.'
-- Kindling

'The earthy watercolor illustrations are just beautiful.'
-- Youth Services Book Review, STARRED REVIEW

'Children will delight in the story of how one Easter Day, Goran the bull broke free in an angry rampage only to be tamed by Karl, a seven-year-old boy.'
-- Creative Steps

'The illustrations are detailed and lush with a classic quality. An imaginative picture book about bravery.'
-- YA Books Central

'Marit Törnqvist's colorful drawings bring out the atmosphere and countryside as the story evolves. Rural life and Sweden come alive in a tale that is perfect for discussion about community involvement and problem-solving, with appealing illustrations adding to a story that will especially attract libraries.'
-- Donovan's Literary Service

'A low key story, in contrast to the lively style of many current picture books, Goran's Great Escape invites the reader in ('Let's find out what happened') and asks to be shared by child and adult… The watercolour illustrations have a cool Nordic feel, capturing a time and place that is past but not dated. The landscape format of the pages is well-used with events strung over double-page spreads in some instances and in others vignettes on the verso point to what is happening in a larger illustration on the recto. Delightful.'
-- Valerie Coghlan, Books for Keeps

'The delightful illustrations make you feel as if you were actually there!'
-- Tammy Dolling

'A comforting and amusing story with lovely illustrations.'
-- Jean Little Library

'Illustrations, in translucent water based paints in earthly hues, are masterly. The design of the layout, with the necessity to integrate a long text with the images, is exemplary.'
-- Jane Doonan, School Librarian

'A sweet and charming story.'
