  • "vintage Hoberman. Clever, rhyming wordplay mining a single concept for all it's worth and a singsong cadence that begs to be read aloud combine to produce a text reminiscent of earlier collaborations... [Boutavent's illustrations] share a high attention to detail, inviting children to pore over pictures for new discoveries on every page opening." -Kirkus Reviews
