"The tone of the wry, bemused narrator is perfect...and the target audience will likely be eager for a repeat listen."

This is a crowd-pleaser, complete with cupcake poops and rainbow burps, and...a welcoming and unobtrusive gender-nonconforming vibe." --Horn Book "Climo creates gleeful unicorn havoc ... there's a lot of mischievous fun to be had."--Publishers Weekly
