“This story is a discovery that everyone—child and adult—should make as soon as possible. It is one of those books that will never completely leave your mind. Take the message to heart and you just might become a better person.” The Science Fiction and Fantasy Review

“‘Mama God and Papa God lived in the empty darkness.’ So begins a creation tale notable for its vivid Haitian-style art (double-page spreads that dazzle), for a nicely cadenced text that begs to be read aloud and, not least, for its gender-equity approach to the nature of God.” Toronto Globe and Mail
