Reviews

The mayhem itself is solid slapstick, and the buildup is well-paced... Decidedly delightful. --Kirkus Reviews Graham's sweetly odd characters, goth-lite vibe, and gift for exaggeration may remind readers of offbeat fare such as Coraline or James and the Giant Peach... [R]eaders will come away recognizing the value in not letting the perfect be the enemy of the good, as well as investing energy in pursuits one actually enjoys. --Publishers Weekly This story is witty and reassuring and features brilliant visual details. --Horn Book Guide Reviews Hilarious details are scattered cleverly throughout this story, which is sure to become a favorite. --Foreword Reviews The mixed-media illustrations create a world that is quirky yet familiar as Percival learns about acceptance. --Skipping Stones magazine
