Raves and Reviews

"Repetitive text, short sentences, and sight words will help ensure that readers build confidence as they move through the story.

VERDICT A solid addition to any early reader collection that will surely help young readers grow."

– School Library Journal, 1/27/2023

"Meanwhile, subtle font and wording changes combined with slight adjustments to character expressions and placement result in text that reinforces decoding skills through repetition and making the simple, funny narrative accessible to emerging readers."
