"[A] delightful tale."--Wall Street Journal
"If your kids still allow you to read aloud to them, this book is for you."--Newsday
"[A]n astounding tale...an absolute delight to read out loud....one part Douglas Adams, one part Doctor Who, and one part The Usual Suspects."--boingboing.com
"It's hard not to love a novel that borrows equally from Calvin and Hobbes and The Usual Suspects. If you read only one book this year, a story with dancing dwarfs is always a wise choice."--Kirkus Reviews
This would also make a wonderful readaloud, but don't be surprised if the kids insist that it be read in one sitting--and maybe with a side of cookies and milk.--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
