"The story is hilariously descriptive....Its engaging flow makes for a great read-aloud." (School Library Journal)
"This entertaining book gets at the truth of children's feelings and is a good choice for reading aloud to a slightly younger crew." (Booklist)
"Readers who like Captain Underpants have a new choice, one that will make them howl and won't make their parents squirm." (Kirkus Reviews)
I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
I have really enjoyed Sara Pennypacker's works in the Clementine series. I think a different narrator would make this book pop. It isn't bad in the narration, it just isn't kid like. I think Jessica Almasy would have made this book more enjoyable because her voice made the childish antics of Clementine jump out. This narrator sounds too adult.
