"Arcimboldo meets Mad Magazine as a monster that looks like a cross between an octopus and a compost pile bargains with a young narrator willing to sacrifice his prized soccer ball, and even his new bike, rather than eat peas. . . there's a Seussian (or Clement Clarke Moore) flavor to the rhymed text. . . the rollicking rhythms and madcap, over-the-top art give this. . . [book] plenty of comic energy." --Kirkus Reviews

"The rhymes flow, begging to be read aloud. Faulkner has created a truly disgusting monster with hairy feet and icky toenails, covered with slimy vegetables, too big for the page. Children will clamor to hear this one again and again." --School Library Journal
