Reviews
"Levine's well-paced, straightforward storytelling plays nicely against the broad comedy in Nash's color-washed ink drawings. Full of action, zaniness, and a few metamoments in which characters crawl out of the story, this makes a good companion to David Wiesner's similarly fractured THE THREE PIGS (2001)."--Booklist
"The wry humor of the herd, who crack jokes and banter in speech bubbles alongside the narrative, will appeal to children and lends comic relief to the story of a difficult journey."--School Library Journal
"In this uproarious adaptation, Nash and Levine's twist ending ensures a happy ending, and the sheep's speech bubble cacophony provides an entertaining backdrop to a surprisingly tense story."--Publishers Weekly
"There's a glow and a flow to the pictures that add shine to the story."--ALA Booklist
Praise for Betsy Who Cried Wolf: "A must-have."--Kirkus Reviews
"Nash stages the shenanigans in an attractive country landscape, supporting Levine's light tone with comical pen drawings of the round-faced, energetic Betsy. Good read-aloud fun."--The Horn Book
"Tongue-in-cheek funny, this is sure to find a place alongside Betsy's earlier escapade."--Kirkus Reviews
