Reviews
Thought-provoking . . . An accessible addition to libraries that may function as a springboard for a discussion on positive communication and the importance of listening."--School LIbrary Journal

"Like Ludwig and Barton's previous picture book, The Invisible Boy (2013), which concerns a quiet child, this book has a purpose. It deals with a recognizable problem, offers some points to discuss, and delivers its message lightly." --Booklist

"Sympathetic and most of all, hopeful."--Publishers Weekly

"The ending reflects real life in that Owen still has bouts of talkativeness, though now he does also listen for others' input. . . . Similarly talkative youngsters struggling with social interactions may want to schedule their own laryngitis days." --Kirkus Reviews

"This delightful story shows the beauty and benefits of tuning in and listening to others in compassionate, caring ways--something we definitely need more of in our chatter-filled world!" --Dr. Michele Borba, bestselling author of UnSelfie: Why Empathetic Kids Succeed in Our All-About-Me World
