"Polisar demonstrates more respect for children than just about any other artist, celebrating them as they are andencouraging them to laugh at themselves." - American Library Association
"Don't miss this one!" - The Green Bay Press Gazette, Green Bay, Wisconsin
"Barry is obviously not a grown-up. He is, in fact, proud that he has hung onto his childhood. He rememberssquabbles with his sister, having to finish everything on his plate and wondering why teachers sometimes don't liketheir students. And because he remembers, children like him." - The La Crosse Tribune, La Crosse, Wisconsin
