"The tautly told tale, dramatic surprise, and appropriate comeuppance for the protagonist will delight young listeners."

"Wilson's bouncy, humorous verses mesh well with Rankin's cartoonlike, watercolor illustrations, which fairly teem with visual asides."
"This imaginative counting book will keep children laughing...."
