“A clever and visually striking tale that proves revenge is a dish best served wet.”—Publishers Weekly

“A clear victory for a pufferfish and, more importantly, readers.”—Kirkus Reviews

“This expressive, darkly funny picture book is sure to amuse kids and parents alike—and maybe reinforce that it’s a bad idea to play with your food. Suggest to fans of Jon Klassen’s This Is Not My Hat.”—Booklist

“The surprise ending will have readers going back again and again to see the octopus’s reaction.”—School Library Journal

“Both story and art will carry well to a crowd, making this a particularly seaworthy addition to an ocean-themed storytime or classroom study, or pair it with Klassen’s This Is Not My Hat for a duo of (fish) tales about rough justice, marine style.”—BCCB
