‘Tá an leabhar féin gleoite […] Is fada fada ó léigh mé féin an t-úrscéal agus is cinnte gur spreag an leagan nua mé le tabhairt faoi arís.’
Pól Ó Muirí, The Irish Times, 2 Bealtaine 2016
‘Seo againn eagrán snasta tarraingteach coimrithe de sheoid de chuid litríocht na Gaeilge, curtha i gcló ag Cois Life breis is céad bliain tar éis chéadfhoilsiú an bhunscéil. […] Tá saibhreas do-inste teanga san insint seo, scoth na Gaelainne, agus tugann sí léargas do léitheoirí ár linne ar nósanna traidisiúnta na scéalaíochta Gaeilge [agus] b’fhiú go mór an leabhar a chur faoi bhráid déagóra níos sine a bhduil spéis aige/aici sa léitheoireacht. B’fhiú freisin, mar a mholann an t-eagarthóir, eispéaras teaghlaigh a dhéanamh den leabhar agus é a aithris os ard le páistí níos óige.’
Róisín Adams, Inis, iris de chuid Children’s Books Ireland, Iúil 2016.
