    "Hilarious, cute little book. I got it for my kid, who absolutely loved it, but I enjoyed it quite a lot. Really has that unique Japanese feel to it. Very quirky and cute but also serious at times, even in absurd circumstances."

    "This was a very interesting book. Reading it made me feel like I was drifting through the main character's thoughts. You get this up close look at Taro's life but the writing makes you still feel somewhat distant. It was a very compelling experience. Some people may find Spring Garden to be odd but I'll bet they'll fall in love with the beautiful prose in the book. I had no problems with the translation. "
