"These masterful mini-dramas will delight and amuse easy-reader and picture-book audiences, alike." School Library Journal (starred review)
"These books will easily take their place alongside Seuss and Eastman as classics in the beginning-reader genre." The Bulletin (starred review)
"All of the requisite Elephant and Piggie elements are here, with expressive type size, colored word balloons (which now include green and brown in addition to the traditional gray and pink), apoplectic bedlam, and warm resolution. Elephant and Piggie's many friends will welcome these two new characters into the fold." Booklist Online
"Everything that readers have come to love about the Elephant and Piggie books is present — masterful pacing, easy-to-follow, color-coded speech bubbles, hilarious body language — except an emotionally satisfying ending." Kirkus
