"Tougas' bright illustrations will draw young readers in."
Southwest Ohio and Neighboring Libraries - October 9, 2012
"The story is quite clever and youngsters will be drawn in by the simple text and folksy humor. The illustrations are the star of the show though; each page features a monochromatic background with the action or character in question in full color. This makes the action standout and helps the reader focus the eye on the action going on in the text...A simple story comes very much alive with these wonderful illustrations."
