“Illustrated in simple black and reds and written in what appears to be handwritten letters, it’s a delightful and simple book and readers will love finding the answer to the riddle.” —San Francisco Book Review

“A rare book of irresistible nonsense . . .” —The New York Times
“A nonsense picture book with a guessing element in it and the repetition children love.”  – Kirkus Reviews
“For Dorothy Kunhardt, a children’s book was nothing more or less than a way to talk to children. And if along the way the pages of the book had to float in a bath, had to squeak, had to bounce, had to light up, had to change color, had to feel furry or be in the shape of a snake or an elephant for feeling under the covers, if the book had to have a lock on it, a hole through it, a smell all its own, even if the book had to be eaten, that was O.K.—because that was all part of the delight.” —Philip B. Kunhardt, Jr., The New York Times

“. . . noble nonsense that, like Lear’s, could be at once ridiculous and poignant.” —Barbara Bader, American Picture Books
