With instinctive skill, Haughton uses spreads of the forest to establish atmosphere and set up jokes, then delivers punch lines with spot illustrations that zero in on the animals’ dopey but lovable expressions. - Publishers Weekly
Complete with a happy ending and a hint to an additional adventure this book has humor, repetition, and cartoon-like drawings that every kid will love.This picture book has a cover that kids will reach for, with a very sweet little owl. More abstract representations and subdued colors extend the range of whom it might appeal to, as I would read it again at eleven to practice my Spanish.Told entirely in Spanish, Un Poco Perdido will appeal to native Spanish speakers, beginning Spanish speakers (like me!), and even those that don’t know any Spanish at all as the tale is so universal and well told in pictures. It reminded me a little bit of the classic, Are you my mother? by P.D. Eastman. Un Poco Perdido will be a hit and one that kids will return to again and again.---Kids Book Buzz
Chris Haughton manages to deliver a potent dose of suspense and surprise for a dynamic narrative full of wide-eyed creatures and vibrant forest landscapes, designed and art-directed with a kind of craftsmanship and creative vision that make the turning of each page an absolute treat. - Brainpickings
A stunning literary and visual achievement. - Irish Times
The art does a wonderful job of conveying movement and encouraging page turns. This little gem will work equally well in storytimes or one-on-one. - School Library Journal
