Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 1-2–This book contains a bizarre mix of stories and poems. Each one features a cute but troublesome animal. A “cutesy-wutesy, itsy-bitsy, chubsy-wubsy” seal runs away from the zoo and goes on a crime spree before being thrown in the slammer. A polar bear antagonizes his agent by eating the other performers on stage with him. Another selection explores the fate of dodos who just don't think. Yanok's cartoon illustrations are colorful and bright. They will be appealing to young children, but much of the humor will be over their heads, and one has to wonder about the snide tone of these cautionary tales.–Loreli E. Stochaj, Franklin School, Summit, NJ. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.


Publisher's Weekly, August 30, 2010
"Reiss (The Boy Who Wouldn’t Share) delivers a witty collection of poems and stories that emphasize mischief… The humor is often sophisticated but nonetheless child-friendly…

In cheerful cartoons that recall 1950s animation, newcomer Yanok keeps up with the madcap plots while adding whimsical details of his own."

Format: Hardcover
I loved this book, it got some good messages across very bluntly in a way even the youngest of kids could understand. I do warn this is not for the "uppity" type parent who gets all wound up over a little dark humour. My girls (ages 3 and 4) got the messages very clearand really enjoyed this book, it certainly made reading fun at bed time.
