Praise For…

“A colorful, slyly skewed world . . . and Frank's youthful resourcefulness and deeply appealing, googly eyed 'who, me?' look are enough to suggest that he isn't truly a bad seed.” —Publishers Weekly

“Dark and hilarious. . . . Collins' pictures . . . are a smooth jazzy tribute to mid-century chic, and there's a big payday for kids who scan the background details carefully.” —BCCB

“A bubbly and imaginatively illustrated read-aloud.” —Kirkus Reviews

"Whalley’s jaunty verse is a delight to read aloud, and the deadpan tone is deftly fleshed out by Collins’s playful gouache-and-ink cartoon illustrations. The lovable googly-eyed protagonist and a plethora of silly details will tickle sharp-eyed ­readers." - School Library Journal
