Awards and Recognition

Bank Street College Best Children's Book of the Year


“The level of Cleary’s inventive verbal humor is greatly magnified by Gable’s madcap drawings of dressed animals dramatizing the sentences with cartoon-style exaggeration … Language-arts teachers will appreciate the variety of examples, while children will enjoy the comic relief and, with any luck, absorb the concept along the way.” (Booklist)
