Review quotes

Facial features are exaggerated in this Spanish import—eyes are large, noses upturned, ears stick out—but no one exudes a more toothy joy than Benji when his wish for a doll finally comes true. Though slight on story, it's big on heart and makes for a long-overdue replacement for the venerable William's Doll, by Charlotte Zolotow and illustrated by William Pène Du Bois (1972). Friendship trumps gender norms. — Kirkus
