Review Quotes



A stylish and witty picture book.--Sunday Times (London)

[T]his tale is timely and helps make the point that a balance of technology and old-school fun might be the way to go. A goofy story about the dangers of too much of one thing, and a lighthearted lesson for all.--School Library Journal

Text and illustrations are packed with humor.--Horn Book Magazine

From the writer and illustrator of The Bad Seed (2017), The Good Egg (2019), and The Cool Bean (2019), this picture book certainly has a point to make, but it does so with disarming wit and abundant charm.--Booklist

Looking for a spud-tacular read? Starch here. --Kirkus Reviews
