“Delightful.”—The Boston Globe

“[A] superbly absurd tale . . . The rhyming text is natural and paced for surprise. And the droll watercolors handle facial expressions well from aggravation to awe to admiraton.”—The San Francisco Chronicle

* “Agee and his simple, droll watercolors return with a work that manages to be absurdist, alarming, and—just when you least expect it—poignant. . . . Very strange, and very, very wonderful.”—Booklist, starred review

* “Agee appeals to connoisseurs of the absurd, and he shapes ridiculous developments into a tightly composed and satisfying picture book.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Fun—just plain fun.”—Kirkus

“Agee knows what his young readers want—plain silliness—and he delivers. Hilarious.”—School Library Journal
