"Matte-like illustrations feature bright colors that pop against neutral backgrounds, and visual details such as Babak s googly eyeballs add to the silliness...early elementary students should appreciate this goofy tale." Kathleen McBroom, Booklist" "This clever book, written by the prolific French children s author Fred Paronuzzi, intends mainly to make its readers laugh to deliver the satisfaction of being in on the joke. In that it succeeds absolutely, and Andree Prigent s stylish and witty, modern-looking illustrations only add to the book s delight."- Maria Russo, New York Times Book Review"
