Reviews

Library Media Connection

“I like this book because it will help educators discuss an embarrassing topic with children; the cover art and illustrations are eye-catching and fun. This book will have children giggling until the last page.”―Library Media Connection

Booklist

“Giddily illustrated with glorious cartoon grossness, this is a great normalizing device for all those reluctant regurgitators out there.” —Booklist

Publishers Weekly

“[Carlson] writes with empathy, reassurance, and a ’them’s the breaks, kid’ brand of humor as she follows a girl’s bout with the flu…. and her matter-of-fact writing and visual demonstrations that everything from aardvarks to leprechauns throw up, too, are a kind of medicine in themselves.” —Publishers Weekly
