"Expertly imagined, composed, drawn and colored, this is Wiesner at his best."

-- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Wiesner once again produces a fantasy adventure that isn't like anything else around."
-- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"This exemplary Wiesnerian blend of ordinary and extraordinary incorporates the delights of Borrowers-style innovations, quintessential cat behavior, and Wiesner's own exquisitely fashioned art."

-- Horn Book (starred review)

"Once again Wiesner dips into his impressible imagination to deliver a mostly wordless conceptual picture book where the mundane and the magical collide. . . .Wiesner is a three-time Caldecott winner. Three. Fans will be ready to pounce."

-- Booklist (starred review)

"Visual storytelling at its best."
-- School Library Journal (starred review)

"The award-winning Wiesner (his trophy collection would make Meryl Streep blush) is a master of the form, a magical realist who makes the commonplace seem suddenly more interesting."
-- The Atlantic Wire

"Fans of Tuesday will recognize Wiesner's easy shift from the mundane to the fantastical here as well as his deft and plausible creation of a skewed reality. . . . On a more dramatic note, there's a Spielberg/Lucas level of glory to the bold ant-back and ladybug-flying escape scenes (you can practically hear the John Williams score)."
-- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
