"Hayes himself appears at the beginning and end, recalling to a small group of listeners how, as a lad, he changed his mother's irritated tune about keeping bubblegum in his shirt pockets....Castro exaggerates the expressions on his human characters and gives the rattler a fiercely intense air of menace for this brief and thoroughly believable (right?) tale." --Kirkus Reviews

"The large, two-page illustrations depict the exaggerations of this tall tale perfectly with varying perspectives on the child's encounter with the creature, bright shades of gold and turquoise, and an emphasis on pink (of course). Endpapers repeat the bold pink with splashes of a paler hue, framing a fun book for just about any kid; boys, especially, will love it." --School Library Journal

"An upbeat and playful story, perfectly accentuated by the wry yet realistic art." --Midwest Book Review

"Veteran storyteller Hayes masterfully spins a kid-pleasing tall-tale from the Arizona desert...A surefire storytime pleaser." --Children's Literature
