Editorial Review

"A smart, charmingly manipulative kid trying to get what she wants makes for a fun (and diverse!) story that both children and adults can enjoy."—Kirkus Reviews
"This quirky and humorous bedtime book could be used to encourage children to explain their ideas in unique ways. It could also be used to encourage them to support their ideas with evidence." —School Library Journal
"Laditan’s arch and committed formality, punctuated with colloquialism for effective contrast, is supremely funny...Parents and children alike will snicker at this new take on the bedtime book."—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books(BCCB)

"Every page is laugh-out-loud funny, as Laditan, with Knight’s expressive illustrations, expertly presents the girl’s matter-of-fact business approach."—Booklist
