  • "The rhyming text is full of humor that will appeal to kids...Bright and busy illustrations bring the amazingly messy room to life." (Kirkus).

  • "[A] romp through the messiest mess since the Cat in the Hat came to visit." (School Library Journal).

  • Praise for Shark vs. Train:
    * "This is a genius concept." (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

  • * "Lichtenheld's snarling shark and grimacing train are definitely ready for a fight, and his scenarios gleefully play up the absurdity. The combatants' expressions are priceless when they lose. A glum train in smoky dejection, or a bewildered, crestfallen shark? It's hard to choose; both are winners." (Kirkus, starred review).

  • Praise for Duck! Rabbit!:
    Time Magazine Top 10 Children's Book
    ALA Notable Children's Book
    Publisher's Weekly Best Children's Books of the Year

    * "How cute is this? Really, really cute." (Booklist, starred review).
