"Lively pen-and-ink, watercolor, and photoshop cartoon illustrations join with the humorous text to tell the tale with panache." -- School Library Journal
"Mandel's euphonious text is a pleasure to read aloud. The amusing asides...the crazy-sounding sneezes, and the humor ("The Zookeeper tried wiping Zebras with spray cleaner") will all get kids giggling. Smith's goofy cartoonish art...is a perfect complement to the comical text." -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
