Editorial Reviews

“For those who have enjoyed (and possibly worn out) the previous paperback editions, this collection will be a welcome replacement ... Three times the fun for a fair price if compared to the single editions.” —Resouce Links

“These whimsical and droll stories appeal to kids’ humor and love of the unexpected. The full color cartoon style illustrations perfectly match the playful spirit of the wacky stories. The pages are a larger size than the original and have nice touches in the page design like the tow truck or turkey or money bucket decorative elements by the page numbers. This volume is an excellent value for libraries wishing to refurbish their ‘Matthew’ collections, and it will introduce a new generation of kids to these enjoyable stories. Highly Recommended.” —Canadian Materials
