Reviews

"Gordon's animated, endearing cartoon illustrations readily convey Tyler's apprehension, determination, and joy . . . Energetic and encouraging." --Kirkus Reviews

"Gordon is a talented illustrator, especially when it comes to depicting key words . . . Collections of all sizes can welcome this book, which fosters empathy for those with speech -challenges." --School Library Journal

"Drawing, per an author's note, from teen activist and artist Gordon's experiences with stuttering, this uplifting work employs humor, rhythmic text, and lively digital illustrations as it moves toward a longed-for moment in which 'the crowd went WILD' for the young protagonist." --Publishers Weekly
