Description

"Large, colorful illustrations set against ample space make this appropriate for group sharing...droll touches, such as the shark in the neighbor's pool, keep it fun." --School Library Journal

"Using an adorably chunky kawaii aesthetic that fans of her previous books will recognize, Wan (Sleepyheads) serves up a whale-size dilemma... Wan's comedic sensibilities shine as the boy tries various methods to remove the whale, which maintains a state of unruffled serenity... A compromise lets everyone win, while a zinger ending suggests the boy's animal problems are only beginning. Wan's cuddly, candid world is the sort that readers will want to step into again and again." --Publishers Weekly

"Wan's curvilinear and comforting style recalls Hello Kitty and other Japanese pop art in its fat dark lines and squat characters, but the hero has an antic physicality and a wide range of emotional expressions. Her world feels safe and joyful, even as the hero experiences anger and frustration." --Emily Jenkins, The New York Times Book Review
