"This charming tale comes just in time for Mother’s Day"

Daniel Hahn is a careful, creative translator and his lovely sing-along lines avoid cliché. The tone is never cloying — a feat in a paean to mums for this age group; so many other stories splat thoughtless praise on bland pictures of pastel mothers until it means nothing at all.
