Reviews

School Library Journal

“Crazy costumes, silly glasses, and comical expressions keep the mood as light as the author’s bouncy narration…. This volume is a great addition to classroom and library collections.” —School Library Journal

Booklist

“While consistently centered on communicating grammar with wit and precision, Cleary juggles meter and rhyme with seemingly effortless skill. Meanwhile, Gable’s colorful and frequently zany illustrations support the text with humor and intriguing details. A surprisingly enjoyable introduction to plurals.” —Booklist
