Praise For…


"This is a cozy family read to enjoy together and reiterates the vital lesson that even small people can do great things. A timeless lesson combined with vintage vibes for a comforting read-along."
— Kirkus Reviews

"Teague (Cat Dog) tells his story with elegance and emotional authenticity; grayscale acrylic art winks at the classic film with details that reward close reading."
— Publishers Weekly

"Teague’s engaging text, which introduces the cousins through a series of contrasts, leads readers to admire Kong and to love Junior. A rewarding picture book that's fun for reading aloud."
— Booklist

"In a charming nod to black-and-white films, Teague’s illustrations depict sharp contrasts between Kong’s heroic and exciting life and Junior’s normal one. Young readers will love seeing that Junior can be a hero in his own right. This story would work well for a preschool read-aloud and will be welcomed on the shelves by children who strive to be taller and stronger. An easy purchase for public libraries."
