"Mills writes with such a light, humorous touch that many scenes beg to be read aloud. Much information is subtly woven in to the narrative, and the gathering of world leaders at the tea is a sight to behold." --Kirkus Reviews
"Enriched by its portrait of grade-school friendships and goofy classroom happenings." --Booklist
"Bully for Riley and bully for Mills for writing a timely, comfortable school story filled with likable fourth graders." --The Horn Book
“Children will appreciate this gentle lesson about achieving a goal.” –School Library Journal
“Mills introduces an ingenious, likable lad. Alley’s animated art enhances the tale’s humor and helps capture the characters’ diverse personalities.” --Publishers Weekly
