Pomelo Begins to Grow was a New York Times Book Review Notable Book of the Year and a New York Times Editors' Choice The second Pomelo title, Pomelo Explores Color and its companion volume Pomelo's Opposites have both received glowing reviews. Pomelo Explores Color received a starred review in Publishers Weekly and warm words from Kirkus. Likewise, Pomelo's Opposites received a starred review from Kirkus Reviews and warm words from Publisher's Weekly as well as a great write-up from Sarah Harrison Smith of The New York Times The Pomelo books are great for kids. Smart, offbeat, whimsical, adorable -- they are immediately inviting while working at a high level conceptually Each is well-made: solidly constructed of beautiful woodfree paper; production values are high, with vibrant color and spot gloss on the concept books. The trim-size of each book matches the book's subject conceptually. Pomelo Begins to Grow is an oversize vertically-oriented book because it is about the small elephant beginning to grow, so the book size grows with him; the two concept books are thick and chunky because these conceptual books are about going deep into a subject; this book is oblong because it's about hitting the road and going on an adventure.

"Amid the cheery storytelling and dear illustrations, the very straightforward scariness surrounding solitude and self-reliance surfaces, along with some coping strategies. . . This jaunty little elephant provides a mammoth lesson for young readers about bravery, grit and fortitude." -- STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews "Throughout Pomelo's Big Adventure, a gentle spirit of exploration leads the protagonist and the reader onward. Oversize pages filled with Mr. Chaud's witty, bright drawings that pop amid white pages reflect the elephant's sense of curiosity and openness to possibilities." -- New York Journal of Books "Someone goes on a journey" is one of the guiding precepts of narrative; "Are we there yet?" is one of the guiding precepts of childhood. . . like all terrific books, they're reasons enough to travel." - - Daniel Handler, The New York Times Book Review "Pomelo will teach your child that taking risks may be scary, ah but the rewards may be very great. The illustrations are so spectacular in a most enchanting way, and when you read the story while looking at the big two-page spreads, your heart will fill with joy." - Smart Books for Smart Kids "Badescu conveys the nervousness and anxiety that can come with traveling solo, and tiny, pink Pomelo remains a quirky, comic hero." - Publishers Weekly "Amid the cheery storytelling and dear illustrations, the very straightforward scariness surrounding solitude and self-reliance surfaces, along with some coping strategies. . .
