Product Details


The winning message never obscures the book’s fun. Hindley’s deliciously detailed illustrations, in pencil and paint, digitally colored, bring Bee’s story to boisterous life. The affection between Albert and mild-mannered Sidney is palpable. Just sublime.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

The irony at the hear of Worst in Show—that Sidney’s terribleness at being a monster is what makes the sweet beast such a good friend to Albertdirected at just the right level for kids. But the real pleasure here is in the intricate illustrations fill of witty treats that will make reading (and rereading, and rereading) a pleasure. Parents beware!
—USA Today (syndicated)

The pencil and paint cartoons are digitally colored and depict a television studio brimming with activity and details. Overall, a fun and pleasing tale.
—School Library Journal

Monster-themed storytimes will benefit from this wry addition, and kids will certainly declare Sidney a winner, sweet-smelling farts and all.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

This is a fun friendship story with wonderful illustrations that readers will enjoy.
