Chicago Trubune Best Children's Books of the Year
"You will never, ever, ever find a better, truer, more big-hearted poetic saga about an orange, a lychee, and dancing Friedrich Nietzsche. It begs to be sung aloud. And will make you a better person. Completely beyond good and evil!" -Jon Scieszka, first National Ambassador for Young People's Literature. Smorange.
