"Similarly imaginative chapter-book readers will connect with Jelly, and there's no question the lion facts are cool…[Jelly's] skills and the story's action-packed ending…reward readers."--Kirkus Reviews
"A highly satisfying first chapter book. The black and white illustrations by Jane Heinrichs are expressive and cooperate well with the text...similar to those in Sara Pennypacker's 'Clementine' books."--CM: Canadian Review of Materials
"Well written and entertaining...she does put her imagination to good use several times by being able to come up with some pretty inventive solutions to problems that arise at the centre."--Resource Links
