"A very enjoyable and humourous story."

— Resource Links

"Delightful...an excellent read-aloud...Highly recommended."

— CM Magazine

"Adderson writes with poetry, colour, and a real flair for zany description that lends itself to being read aloud."

"[Bruno] is witty and willful...A seven-year-old using this to practise reading aloud with a parent will have them both laughing."

— Times-Colonist
