Reviews
The academic setting, imaginative Stella, and brown-noser Horace combine for an ideal opportunity for DiCamillo to exercise her characteristic wordplay...An adorable story that teaches readers that things--and people--are not always what they seem.
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

DiCamillo regularly uses advanced vocabulary and seamlessly weaves word definitions into the plot. With metaphor as a primary concept, this text could easily be used in a classroom curriculum. Van Dusen's illustrations are delightful as always, and enhance the story with their humorous and exaggerated quality. ­An engaging and high quality book for young students that will appeal to reluctant and advanced readers alike.
--School Library Journal

This fifth entry in the series (Leroy Ninker Saddles Up, rev. 9/14, and sequels) stars young Stella Endicott...As ever, Van Dusen's frequent illustrations add so much, capturing with apt exaggeration all the drama, humor, and emotions of Stella's adventure- and metaphor-filled day.
