Booklist Online

“So many picture books promote the joys of friendship that it’s refreshing to find one celebrating ‘the bliss of solitude’ in such a cheerful way. . . . A fresh, amusing addition to the Elmer series.”—Booklist Online

School Library Journal

“Elmer is a likeable protagonist, who’s resourceful . . . and confident enough to stand apart from the herd. . . . Another winning entry from the series.”—School Library Journal
