"The story bubbles with an inexhaustible energy, never snarky or overreaching, while the endpapers and their directions for drawing the story's characters invite readers to create episodes of their own." --Publishers Weekly

"Laid out with large, colorful easy-to-follow panels, doodlelike figures engaged in all kinds of appealing slapstick situations, and big, bold speech bubbles, this is a solid introduction to graphic novels for a young audience." --Booklist

"The knight has a pretty remarkable range of emotion for someone wearing a helmet, and the eggplant-shaped Edward is a great straight man (or horse)." --The Horn Book

"The small cast (just four characters) and economy of words make for an engaging and easy flow for beginning readers." --Kirkus Reviews

"This funny tale is sure to be popular with young readers and cartoonists." --School Library Journal

"The crisp, comics-style panels and fairly easy vocabulary make this accessible and appealing to strong primary-grade readers as well as middle-graders." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
