"A gentle, realistic early chapter book. " - Kirkus Reviews
"Understated…Elmquist writes movingly about Reece's struggle with his parents' 'trial separation,' and his emotions are also evident in Parkins's moody b&w illustrations." - Publishers Weekly
"Where's Burgess? paints a world that children can relate to…The illustrations in the book are excellent and put on the page exactly what was in my mind…Enduring and memorable. [Where's Burgess?] has the perfect amount of complexity. It is a wonderfully modern story of how connection can combat devastation. Elmquist is a true children's writer. She doesn't just ease children into literature with this book; she eases them the world." - Nexus Newspaper
"Any reader who has lost a loved one will enjoy this poignant story with its upbeat characters and supportive family members. Its brief text and simple line drawings make it ideal for beginning chapter book readers." - Resource Links
"Where's Burgess? fits perfectly within the 'Orca Echoes' series which features character-building stories. The vocabulary level is well within an acceptable range for burgeoning readers to read on their own; however, this book also has the potential to be shared between parents and children at bedtime or by a teacher as a classroom read-aloud…For any child who has felt a sense of loss, unlike a frog desiring to blend in, this story is sure to stand out. Highly Recommended." - CM Magazine
