Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Rightly and properly dedicated to Maurice Sendak . . . A reassuring promise that it's OK to be beastly.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Use this at story hour and expect giggles, shrieks, and groans.”
Booklist

“A definite celebration of his style and not an outright copy, this is a must-have for fans of Sendak who adore tales of wildness; sure to have readers young and old giggling with joy.”
