A faithful (if relatively clean) version of the world's oldest surviving complete novel, written 'for librarians, teachers, scholars, and extremely intelligent children.' An entertaining romp, even without the raunchy bits. --Kirkus, starred review (November 2011)
Adults who are familiar with the ancient tale The Golden Ass may be slightly alarmed that it is now being marketed to children, but fear not! The violent, bawdy adventures have been toned down in this adaptation, and the result is quite enjoyable. . . . Motley's pen-and-ink illustrations are terrifically detailed and cartoonlike and are reminiscent of John Tenniel's work in Alice s Adventures in Wonderland. The violence and sex have been softened, but the goofiness and sense of adventure are still here, making this book perfect for humor-loving middle schoolers. --School Library Journal
