Reviews

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, June 15, 2008:
"A witty glossary and Pham's simple yet expressive line drawings perfectly complement this appealing story about the refreshingly original, endearing Alvin."
Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, July 7, 2008:
"Look's . . . intuitive grasp of children's emotions is rivaled only by her flair for comic exaggeration."
