"...a fantastically funny picture book
...(the) characters will quickly become a staple for teachers and librarians everywhere." —Kirkus Reviews
"Alongside a now-familiar cartoon art style that holds much appeal for early readers
, all-dialogue text by Fenske...drives the pace quickly." —Publishers Weekly
"...this triad of cantankerous creatures is absurdly funny
, and their grouchy rebuttals to the narrator’s every request strongly echo a familiar push and pull between kids who want to do their own thing and adults who would rather the youngsters get in line." —BCCB
