"Delightful."--The Boston Globe

"[A] superbly absurd tale . . . The rhyming text is natural and paced for surprise. And the droll watercolors handle facial expressions well from aggravation to awe to admiraton."--The San Francisco Chronicle

* "Agee and his simple, droll watercolors return with a work that manages to be absurdist, alarming, and--just when you least expect it--poignant. . . . Very strange, and very, very wonderful."--Booklist, starred review

* "Agee appeals to connoisseurs of the absurd, and he shapes ridiculous developments into a tightly composed and satisfying picture book."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Fun--just plain fun."--Kirkus

"Agee knows what his young readers want--plain silliness--and he delivers. Hilarious."--School Library Journal
