Product description


“Fernandes’ bright, busy paintings are a good match for the buoyant and ample text, which is full of phonic riffs that make the tale a terrific read-aloud.”

(Kirkus Reviews, *starred review, 02/12)

“Olive Senior . . . lends her poetic flair . . . with snappy sounds and rhythms . . . Eugenie Fernandes adds to the lush scenery with warm, vibrant paintings that exude as much energy as Johnny himself.”

(Foreword Reviews, 04/12)

“This cute book will certainly amuse the younger set and evoke fond (or not so fond) memories in anyone who has had to chase a naked toddler.”

(Word Up, Nerd Up, 04/28/12)

“Enthusiastic junior nudists everywhere will unite behind this one.”

(Booklist, 05/12)

“The voice of Jamaica is in poet Olive Senior’s lilting prose, and the lively illustrations are painted in Fernandes’s signature child-friendly style.”

(CM Reviews, 05/12)

“The story has a lovely rhythm and illustrator Fernandes captures the exuberance of childhood beautifully with her vibrant illustrations.”

(Open Book Toronto, 06/05/12)

“Fun and engaging, the poetic use of language rich and lyrical.”

(Resource Links, 04/12)

“This delightful book will elicit giggles from three-to six-year-olds and knowing smiles from parents.”

(Canadian Children’s Book News, 11/12)

“Comical events will appeal to young children who can identify with strong-willed, independent-thinking Johnny.”

(School Library Journal, 09/12)

“A lot of parents and kids will be able to relate to this delightful tale of unencumbered toddlerhood!”

(Cozy Little Book Journey, 11/20/12)
