"Explosive, cinematic panels; retro Ben-Day dot patterns allude to classic funnies."―Publishers Weekly

"Colorful and catchy... [a] gleeful cautionary tale." School Library Journal

"Mr. Creacher's cautionary tales, told in rhyme, are as appealing as Chris Gall's bold, cartoonlike drawings. It's an educational horror story with a happy ending."―USA Today
