Reviews

School Library Journal

“This clever account, told in rhyme, alludes to the basis for most of today’s standard measurement: the human body….The exaggerated, colorful cartoon illustrations are humorous and appealing. Fans of the author’s other math concept books will be delighted with this offering, too.” —School Library Journal

Kirkus Reviews

“Harris’ ABCB rhyming verses have a nice rhythm to them and some interesting pairings—sickles with pickles…. Stevanovic’s cartoonish illustrations are filled with detail, but his characters steal the show, their pointy and/or pendulous noses and appendages lending each a distinct personality.” —Kirkus Reviews

Illustrator: Ivica Stevanovic

Ivica Stevanovic has illustrated numerous picture books, as well as book covers and graphic novels. He lives in Veternik, Serbia, with his wife, who is also a children's illustrator, and their daughter.
