Booklist

“Cleary’s verse sets the tone, clearly setting out to offer entertainment as well as instruction….Gable creates energetic, comical scenes based on a few words; a cast of madcap, dressed-animal characters; and some unusual color combinations. A useful, amusing introduction.” —Booklist

Kirkus Reviews

“Gable’s illustrations are the true stars here, his feline characters brimming with personality…. better than many grammar books—definitely one to check out.” —Kirkus Reviews
