"Like Agee's The Wall in the Middle of the Book, this makes timely commentary on the purpose of walls in current cultural discourse, and it also speaks to the universal connections of art, two premises that could have tipped into treacly sentiment but are fortunately tempered by the book's bubbly, self-amused glee. The digital art is a riot of vibrant colors and loose geometry, with the squat, square, grumpy-looking guards distinctly different from the rounder, wide-eyed monsters, and Felix a combination of both angles and curves. This could obviously make a discussion starter about overcoming differences, but it could just as well serve as a jazzy opener to a dance party."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"The message of getting to know people before you judge them comes through loud and clear with bright cheerful mixed media artwork. The text is simple and direct without being cloying or pandering. An extremely amiable picture book about acceptance and tolerance of others, and a welcome book for most shelves, this would be a great read-aloud at the beginning of the school year."--School Library Journal

"Felix finds a shocking revelation: The monsters are not monstrous at all. . . . A gentle reminder of the danger of preconceived notions."--Kirkus Reviews

"The soft palette and expressive faces of the characters make for a warm and inviting adventure into the unknown, and the immersive double-page spreads place readers in the midst of the action even providing a seat to enjoy a final performance. A joyful reminder of the power of breaking down barriers and banding together keytar in hand or not."--Horn Book
