Starred Review, School Library Journal, August 1, 2012:
“Fleming’s bouncing rhymes and repeated lines…entice readers into an enjoyable delivery complete with snarled sound effects and onomatopoeic exclamations.”
Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, July 9, 2012:
“It’s a book with the feel of an older classic—and it may well become one.”
