"[Donoghue's] fans will recognize not only her gift for representing a child's point of view, but also her knack for showing how a family, no matter how small or large, develops its own language, even its own culture." -- The New York Times
* "A family very much of our century... Most refreshing is that the Lotterys' many differences... are simply part of their own normal. Full of clever names and wordplay, this engaging tale... will resonate with readers from all backgrounds." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review
* "Donoghue (Room) vividly captures the Lotterys' chaotic but always loving home through a flurry of inside jokes, banter, and nicknames. If some readers have difficulty keeping the members of the large family straight, Hadilaksono's lively David Roberts-esque illustrations... provide a colorful guide to the Lotterys' wonderfully offbeat home." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review
