“Young readers will have a riotously good time trying to follow along with these silly characters, and more sophisticated readers will enjoy a few additional nods and winks as well. Recommended.”

School Library Journal

“The characters’ breezy cool (despite their tangling with gravity, neither ever loses their temper), Wage’s (Fox Gives Thanks) repartee, and Ceccarelli’s (If You Had Your Birthday Party on the Moon) painterly digital portraits, showcased against lots of white space, establish a comedy sketch feel early on and deliver on it
