Praise For Busy Gorillas

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, November 1, 2010:
"As he has done in previous titles, Schindel effortlessly introduces delicious vocabulary in his terse, four-word rhyming couplets. ...Another standout."

Review, Curled Up With A Good Kid's Book (online), December 2010:
"... kept me smiling from the moment I saw the whimsical photograph on its cover until I reached the last endearing picture on the back cover."
