"The story is just as sweet, whimsical, and simple as ever. Sure to delight children looking for a cozy adventure, as well as fans of the series." - School Library Journal

"A fun read for independent young readers but also works as a humorous read-aloud for the sleep-resistant. Another win for this adorable series." - Kirkus Reviews

"Young readers, those who still enjoy a read-aloud and others who are newly independent readers, will enjoy this new book experience – an easy-to-read graphic novel... a delightful, appealing story." - Canadian Review of Materials
