"This production augments the story through clever animation, drawing viewers in and emphasizing all the humorous asides that might be missed by casual readers. It turns out this tale works much better as an animated work than a static book. (Who knew?) Original music, with lilting lullaby themes, accompanies the enthusiastic narration by David de Vries to create a delight that will tickle children and adults. VERDICT: This is a higly amusing romp that addresses a common childhood issue." — Starred review, Teresa Bateman, School Library Journal
