--Publishers Weekly, March 21, 2011, *STAR
“Whether on a lap or in storytime, children will feel the pull of loose rhyme, pleasing momentum and mounting ridiculousness….Varied layouts, full of effective flourishes…highlight Mitsy’s panache and her father’s gentle manipulations. The irresistible tug of clever language combines with visual pizzazz to make this runaway story a runaway hit.”
--Kirkus, April 1, 2011, *STAR
“Itsy Mitsy, a small girl in bright green pajamas, hates bedtime and decides to run away... The bright, minimalist cartoon illustrations are rendered in pencil with digital color, primarily using greens, yellows, and oranges. This entertaining story will appeal to any children who have fought against the dreaded bedtime.”
--School Library Journal, May 2011
“From the first page…this lively story will draw young preschoolers with its cumulative farce and sense of rebellion…The scenarios get wilder and wilder with each page turn, and the fantasy is extended in the hilariously detailed, pencil-and-digital illustrations…. Underlying the laughs, it’s the girl’s warm bond with her father that forms the heart of this high-spirited story.”
--Booklist, May 2011
