“Tallec’s humorous, signature-styled pictures easily keep pace with the book’s mock-serious tone, foregrounding a charismatic protagonist who will help kids find their way, if not to sleep, then at least to plentiful giggles.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Tallec’s free-wheeling style shines as distraction upon distraction piles up on the book’s high-energy double-page spreads. John’s chatty narration and signature dry humor . . . propel the story with frenetic fun. Young audiences won’t hesitate to join in.” —Kirkus Reviews
