“Monroe’s imaginative illustrations play with composition as well as perspective, offering detail-minded readers endless surprises. The goofball text unfolds with tongue firmly in cheek. . . A winner.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Tiny ink detailing (every room of the house is distinctively patterned) lends a miniaturist charm, and the humor in Chico’s industrious solution (delineated into step-by-step panels) warrants repeat readings.” —Publishers Weekly
School Library Journal
“Rendered in thin black line and bright watercolors on visually diverse page spreads, the cartoon illustrations offer much to pore over and reflect this illustrator’s trademark sense of quirky humor.” —School Library Journal
