★ “An elaborate prank on the picture-book genre [that] comes together in playful harmony.”
—School Library Journal, starred review
“[Combines] twisty plotting, irreverent dialogue, visual hilarity, and sophisticated book design into an arch package. But beneath the silly surface, children will find a meaningful exposition of just what goes into a successful picture book, and how author, illustrator, and character must collaborate and compromise.”
