Author, Illustrator: Mat Head


  • Children's Book Committee at Bank Street College Best Children's Book of the Year, Winner, 2012


The Horn Book Guide

“The story’s crisp writing and humorous digital art (an image of the animals in a tower formations illustrates ‘they seemed a little tense’) carry the day.” —The Horn Book Guide

Publishers Weekly

“Debut author Head has a fine sense of visual comedy. His bold black outlines and graphic environments’ geometric shapes establish a mock noir mood, and his cast has an endearing air of eager anxiety crossed with cluelessness—bringing to mind a cross between Sandra Boynton and Aardman, the British animation studio responsible for Wallace and Gromit.” —Publishers Weekly
