Editorial Review

"Just because you're a preschooler, it doesn't mean you can't handle a chapter book. At least author David McPhail doesn't believe that . . .
The stories are told in simple language that's manageable for early readers, who can also look to the colourful pictures for cues. . . Even the youngest reader will understand the gentle humour in these stories, each of which is just a little more of a reading challenge than the last.

This is a good book for solitary reading or for reading aloud to a younger child."
- The Hamilton Spectator
