“Mike's unerring sense of self (“I'm a beautiful blend of dark and light”) and the powerful love that surrounds him make this a rewarding, valuable read for families of any makeup.” ―Publisher's Weekly, starred review
“[A] well-written, fun story of acceptance, friendship, and love. The text, colors, and design make this a good choice for read-alouds, but there are many details in the artwork (usually containing the word “mixed” or a synonym thereof) that make it good for one-on-one sharing.” ―School Library Journal, starred review
“Some kids call him “Mixed-up Mike,” but the protagonist makes clear that he isn't mixed-up at all―just mixed . . . Mike's confidence in his own appearance and coolness as well as the way he proudly embodies diversity, including a certain level of androgyny, make this a refreshing read. Evans' integration of rough-textured fabrics into lively and colorful mixed-media illustrations will make readers want to reach out and touch them . . . If all kids had the confidence about who they are that Mike has, what a wonderful world this would be.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“For the millions of mixed-race Americans who have to endure the constant questioning of their identity, [Mike] has an answer: “I'm a beautiful blend of dark and light, / I was mixed up perfectly, / and I'm JUST RIGHT!” . . . The story's joyful message will resonate with multiracial readers and their families, leaving them with the cheeky takeaway: if you have a problem with me, it's your problem.” ―Booklist--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
