Editorial Reviews

Lester's lively, chucklesome story includes exaggerated statements, onomatopoeia, rhyming chants, and shifting text sizes, which all add to the fun atmosphere. Munsinger brings Lester's story to life with detailed watercolor scenes filled with warm, fuzzy badgers and an array of hilarious facial expressions. Kiddos with bedtime battles might find some solidarity with Boris." -Booklist "
