“The illustrations by Lisa Rammensee are refreshingly colourful and fit the Pantanal habitat incredibly well. The story by Sandra Grimm also reads pleasantly and is peppered with humour. […] Along the way, she [my daughter] gets to know different animals, because she didn’t know capybaras, caimans and macaws before. But we think it is great that in the back of the book there are short introductions to the animals and their habitat.” –

“The illustrator brings a special dynamic to sketchy drawings that depict a movement such as the falling parrot egg or the wildly fluttering Fedro. Children’s author Sandra Grimm has put the story into the right words and added exciting, easy-to-understand information about the threatened habitat of the Pantanal as well as animals such as the capybara, the nandu or the jaguar in the non-fiction section. […] a convincing combination of an exciting, humorous story about courage, helpfulness and friendship and an interesting, easy-to-understand non-fiction section. The illustrations are simply a visual delight!” –
