* " Exactly right for preschool storytime or toddler bedtime, this story will tickle the funny bones of both readers and their audiences." — School Library Journal, starred review
* "Plain white backgrounds allow Emberley, who obviously knows how toddlers move and react, to concentrate closely on his character, whose every beautifully calibrated movement and feeling blasts out across the page. The picture of the kitty gleefully skipping across an empty white expanse with found book in hand is priceless. Even adults will be hard-pressed not to smile." — Booklist, starred review
" The art here is also unexpectedly irresistible, not to mention moving, guaranteeing that for at least one child this will become a very special book of his or her own." — Kirkus Reviews
