Review quote

The story includes more than 20 fun words like 'shenanigans' and 'defenestration' set in bold type; their definitions are on the endpapers.
--School Library Journal

Here's hoping that there are more kerfuffles and shenanigans in the future for this undeniably delightful duo.
--Kirkus, starred review This is the perfect way to introduce bigger words to your littlest kids, which is great if you're feeling tricksy.
