Reviews
Child's razor-sharp humor is in top form, and it's also a highly auspicious debut for Krauss, whose chic Wes Anderson meets New York Fashion Week aesthetic is as memorable as the Shrimptons themselves.
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Stylish... Energetic.
--Kirkus Reviews

This cautionary tale is full of humor (if slightly dark at times) and would greatly enhance a language-arts lesson on descriptive writing. The clever, full-color, full-bleed illustrations incorporate a variety of highly noticeable patterns and text fonts. Maude blends into them well, and discovering where she is in any given picture adds to the fun of the book.
--School Library Journal

Maude ... should strike a chord with any kid who prefers to blend into his or her surroundings. Maude does it quite literally, and the fun for readers is spotting her. ... Those with a taste for black humor will relish Maude's gift for camouflage -- a trait that suddenly seems quite useful
