Reviews

"Believable, appealing characters and pitch-perfect pacing combine nicely with Lester's always-humorous text and Munsinger's hilariously detailed illustrations in this cheerful cautionary tale."
--Kirkus

"Munsinger's ink-and-watercolor illustrations add to the story's deadpan humor, and although this is a message book, the lesson is delivered with such hilarity it never feels preachy."
--Booklist

"Munsinger's watercolor illustrators are bursting with detail, energy, and wittiness, and the three animals that spot Angus and frighten him are quite funny. Youngsters will fall in love with Angus, and adult will appreciate the laugh-out-loud lessons Angus learns about the hazards of a messy bedroom."
--School Library Journal

"Lester and Munsinger are masters of conveying useful messages in a funny and non-didactic way, and Angus's tale is no exception."
