"This poignant, colorful book demonstrates how we must spread our love and care for all living things equally."—Pink! Magazine
"The book has an important and powerful meaning. The moral of the story is you have to take care of everything around you or you'll end up with nothing."—Jonathan Green
"Amadeus by Delores B. Nevils will keep readers, young and not so young, glued to their chairs until they finish the whole story. It is a delightful and engaging story with animal characters who play the role of real people with charm and grace. The illustrations by Jonathan Green add a measure of brilliance."—Andrew Billingsley, author of Yearning to Breathe Free: Robert Smalls of South Carolina and His Families
