From School Library Journal
Grade 2–4—Al Foxword is such a good salesman that he can sell an umbrella to a fish. In his clashing plaid suit and carrying a briefcase, the toothy rodent is smooth, persuasive, and, well, cheesy. He tries to sell readers a book called Have I Got a Book for You!
Charcoal pencil illustrations are digitally assembled and feature bright orange, yellow, and green. Foxword's clever sales techniques make this book funny to the hilt. It is going to be well loved by older readers who will laugh out loud at the jokes. If you think you'll pass on this title, he has one more sales technique—"You break it, you buy it!!!" The book concludes with a ripped page.—Susan E. Murray, Glendale Public Library, AZ
