Reviewer: Meg Wolitzer, (New York Times Book Review)

"While 'The Biggest Boy' demonstrates a sensitivity to a child's desire for some kind of power in a world in which he has very little real say, it also depicts parents creating a fantasy life for their child on the child's own terms....In Mr. Henkes's text, the parents encourage the child's fantasies of power and separation and take great pleasure in his responses. The illustrations by Nancy Tafuri are bright and attractive."
