Reviews

"The text--consisting entirely of cartoon-style dialogue bubbles--is minimal, allowing the illustrations to tell the story and provide the humor, while also making this highly appropriate for beginning readers. Yes, friends can be found in unusual places, and there can be plenty of humor in the telling." - Booklist

"
...There is much to enjoy here as two different personalities (and species) form a new family." -Kirkus

"Sullivan's broadly cartooned, all-dialogue story is an exquisitely constructed comedy, a twist on the unwelcome guest plot with not a single beat or visual joke out of place."--Publishers Weekly, STARRED review

"Sullivan's all-dialogue, all speech-balloon text is maximally cunning in its ability to fold word and phrase repetition into the plot without ever straining the vocabulary."--BCCB

"Families will enjoy one-on-one time with the book."--School Library Journal
