Reviews

Niko has an impressive space fantasy going, aided by a tricked-out cardboard-box rocket ship, his dog, his trusty robot toy, and Neubecker's vivid, comically earnest cartooning. But his sister, Posh, keeps trying to hijack the narration, despite Niko's admonition that 'She is not in this story.' . . . Regan (Barnyard Slam) takes readers inside the head of a very imaginative child, honoring Niko's desire to control his story while affectionately spoofing it. It's a funny and fresh spin on sibling conflict . . .' --Publishers Weekly

The text is clear and the narration concise. . . . A good read-aloud to highlight strong female characters and discuss sibling rivalries.' --School Library Journal

Neubecker's solid lines and bright colors channel comic-book art, with multiple frames carrying the narrative on several pages. The themes of imaginary play and sibling rivalry provide good-natured support for a lighthearted, easy-to-read adventure.' --Kirkus Reviews
