"Kalinka's blithe cluelessness and Grakkle's grunting ire should tickle young listeners. Paschkis' colorful and quirky illustrations, rendered in ink and gouache, heighten the supreme silliness of her tale.... Another cute odd-friendship story."
"Humorous monster details will pull in readers for this lighthearted tale of an unusual friendship."
"The momentarily dire consequences and subsequent dΓ©tente are familiar, but Paschkis's innate effervescence more than compensates. She fills the oversize pages with curly ink lines and folk art motifs and colors; it's cozy and cheery, yet it still delivers on the big dramatic moment. While the narration tends toward the see-and-say, Paschkis writes with concision and an ear for words that make for great readalouds"
"[A] fictitious tale that reads more like a modern-day fable....an important lesson about the value of self-control... A strong emphasis on friendship provides a solid theme for this book."
