“The quantification of love is an inexhaustible subject. In this rodent romance, a little mouse confides and counts a love bigger than one bear, taller than two giraffes and so on, through ten kinds of large animals, and larger than all of them together. Charming, mostly pastel, collage illustrations.” - The New York Times Book Review

“Roth creates charming collages that quietly - then thunderously - spell out the size, strength, durability, and expanse of the love one mouse has for another.” - Kirkus Reviews

“A counting book with a nice surprise: a simple charm, a loving voice, and a subtext about racial harmony... Colorful, expressive cut-paper collages... add to the appeal of the book.”- Booklist
