Review quote

"This title follows in the quirky tradition of Harry Allard's "The Stupids" books (Houghton), with clever wordplay and subversive fun that will appeal to children everywhere." -- School Library Journal (starred review) "Pennypacker's droll, deadpan text is matched by Salmieri's flat and hilarious illustrations." -- Horn Book Magazine (starred review) "Kids will immediately pick up the concept and make it into their own joke, and they'll agree that this is the most enjoyable tedium they've ever experienced." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review) "Pennypacker packs the pages full of winning jokes, while Salmieri's colored-pencil art creates a perfectly monotonous world of straight angles and nondescript coloring. Rarely has boring been this boisterous." -- Booklist
