"Pennypacker delivers a hugely entertaining mix of outsized comedic villainy, dreadful parents, delicious cookies, and kindness rewarded. Leeva's sturdy instincts for both survival and justice are worth celebrating, as is the gift of books that expand her world. Splendid fun." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Pennypacker tells the story with warmth and whimsy, recalling the tone and charm of Matilda. Though stuck in comically gloomy situations, Leeva is a delight, her eccentric companions are lovable, and the writing sparkles. A terrifically funny, tender tribute to the power of perseverance, community, and kindness." -- Booklist

"Strongly recalling elements of Roald Dahl's Matilda, this archly narrated satire from Pennypacker slyly integrates potent themes such as fairness, responsibility, and trust." -- Publishers Weekly

"Versatile Pennypacker has written a book that is by turns outrageous and wise, funny and touching, fantastical and true; Cordell's sketches contribute to the levity." -- Horn Book
