“This laugh-and-a-half book gets its kick from well-structured rhyming text and fruit-colored, in-your-face pictures. Fun for children and teachers alike.” —Booklist
“Yoshikawa’s bright, action-packed illustrations add zest to this fast-paced pleaser and include a clock on each page so kids can watch the minutes tick away. This silly, light snack of a tale shows that even teachers can learn a new lesson.” —Kirkus Reviews
School Library Journal
“Rhythm and rhyme follow a tardy Mr. Bungles as he races to be on time. From end pages that trace his route to brightly colored angles of each page, this book shouts MOTION and encourages listeners to fill in the rhyme with each turn of the page.” —School Library Journal
