Booklist Editors Choice

"This is a gem…the music keeps pace with the animals increasing urgency…Mayes (narrates) with hilarity and conveys the characters' breathlessness." - Booklist
"Name an emotion incredulity, hesitation, hysteria, excitement and Mayes gives it voice


loud, breathy, quavering, screeching, rasping he does them all! Rollicking music underscores Mayes's narration." - AudioFile
"…voiced to frenetic perfection by Walter Mayes…The simple animation of the colorful, hilarious artwork gets more intense as the plot thickens. Children will enjoy the scatterbrained sillies, and the story begs for a follow-up discussion about the importance of common sense." - Starred Review, School Library Journal
"…features lively animation, Walter Mayes'expressive narration, and Michael Bacon's plucky music. The colorful collage rendering of their silly escapades is a comic extravaganza!" - ALA Notable Video Committee
