"Organized into short chapters Lilly Traps the Bullies is an excellent introduction for children beginning to reader longer novels. Choice of font size is appropriate and having illustrations every few pages will also help the child to have some visual clues as well as graphic details of story concepts." Rated G - Good, even great at times, generally useful! - Adriane Pettit, Resource Links
"This is a good length for a beginning chapter book. It is short enough that it won't overwhelm readers making the transition from picture books into the longer format of chapter books. Other good points are that Lilly's friends include both boys and girls and there is a good mix of families (single-parent, two parents, a family with a grandmother living with the younger generations)." - Suzanne Costner, elementary school library media specialist
"It's nice to read a book like this wherein the bullies get what's coming to them, but in a humorous instead of dramatic way. . . Overall, it's a pretty quick chapter read and would be good reading for young elementary school kids." - Second Bookshelf on the Right blog
