"Earnhardt's debut is a humorous object lesson in honesty. . . . Italian illustrator Castellani's blocky and bright Saturday-morning-cartoon–style illustrations amp the wackiness and make this frankly fun. On-the-mark help for the parents of inadvertently tactless tots." —Kirkus Reviews (September 2012)
"Newcomer Earnhardt makes her point with solid pacing and lots of laughs. . . . Italian illustrator Castellani's digital artwork is crisp, colorful, and energetic. . . . While Frank might not persuade sharp-tongued children to mend their ways, the story provides a useful array of good ways to deliver bad news." —Publishers Weekly (September 17, 2012)
"This cute and captivating story demonstrates to kids how being brutally honest isn't always necessary. . . . Earnhardt's book is a thoughtful approach in teaching kids to always stay honest, but to be mindful of emotions and soften their approach." —Michigan Reading Journal (September 2012)
