"Rich, unusual textures and luxuriant colors, long Fleming's hallmark, here combine in a way that makes every composition feel positively indulgent."
"The illustrations are vintage Fleming, Van Gogh-inspired endpapers framing the jewel-toned daytime action, all done in her distinctive pulp-painting technique."
"Fleming is ... a thrilling illustrator.... Here, she creates ... some of her most sensational artwork to date. The layers of subtle humor and visual splendor are truly impressive."
--School Library Journal
"Another delightful offering from a great children's author, well worth coming back to again and again."
