Reviews

Booklist

“The level of Cleary’s inventive verbal humor is greatly magnified by Gable’s madcap drawings of dressed animals dramatizing the sentences with cartoon-style exaggeration. . . . Language-arts teachers will appreciate the variety of examples, while children will enjoy the comic relief and, with any luck, absorb the concept along the way.” —Booklist
