Brimming with the dramas of everyday life and placed in a setting of swirling curves and diagonal lines, this is a book that children will pick up frequently, following the directions and enjoying the detours.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
[A] madcap anthropomorphic menagerie… [A] visual adventure into which 5- to 9-year-olds can disappear unaided. … In densely illustrated pages, young readers can follow the characters through wordless, intersecting adventures, all of which culminate beneath a fireworks show at the fair.
