Reviews

"A goofily garrulous story session." --BCCB

"The big, bold speech balloons filled with irrestistible nonsense words make this a great choice for shared read-alouds." --Booklist

"With its suburban setting and palette of pale blues and eau de nil, there's a subtle retro feel to this celebration of playful remarks." --Wall Street Journal

"Portis's fun story is filled with humor and silly rhyming words that both children and adults will appreciate." --School Library Journal

"The creator of A Penguin Story (2009) returns with another imaginative solution to monotony and predictability in the natural world... "The neighborhood was never the same," the narrator reports, and neither will be the charmed listeners and readers of this cheerful inivation to invention." --Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

"Portis, whose Not a Box proposed alternative uses for a cardboard cube and whose A Penguin Story imagined how Antarctic birds regard non-wintry colors, delights in 'What if?' questions." --Publishers Weekly

"Be preapared for "Oobly snooby!" and "Cloggen Zoggen Itsyboggen!" after the book is finished" --Publishers Weekly
