Bruno is a boy with particular tastes and ideas. He will not, for example, eat anything green. He spends one day as Sir Bruno and another as the Queen. He is an entrepreneur and he understands the language of Car. Bruno is a boy worth knowing.

"[Bruno] is witty and willful...A seven-year-old using this to practise reading aloud with a parent will have them both laughing."
Canadian Children's Book News - February 1, 2008
"Adderson writes with poetry, colour, and a real flair for zany description that lends itself to being read aloud."
Resource Links - February 1, 2008
"A very enjoyable and humourous story."
