Readers will love this warm, funny, reassuring [story] about standing up to bullies and taking back one's own space. . . . Kids will howl at Peggy's snappy retorts and will enjoy volunteering their own wildly silly phrases. The lively illustrations move the story along briskly; Peggy and Joan are feisty, well-realized characters. . . . A sound lesson in empowerment and self-respect.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
Encourages anxious young readers to take up space in the world unapologetically, and the hilarious substitutions make for prime read-aloud material. Equally entertaining illustrations wonderfully capture Peggy's emotional growth and uproarious outbursts.Delve into this sunny celebration of self-confidence-you won't be sorry.-- "Booklist"
