Quotes & Awards

  • “Animal noises, bouncy music, and Jane Casserly’s brisk narration celebrate Mayer’s story of a little girl who fends off demanding animals that invade her home…But best of all is Casserly’s tinny, small voice for the heroine, which evokes both her youth and the backbone that makes her a role model.”

    " This book...well you have to see it. It is such a corky tale of a girl and a housefull of animals....their requests to her and her responses to them are hilarious!! The pages where there are no words and my boys fill it in with music or their own words make me laugh eachtime we read it. I have told MANY friends about this book and have purchased it for just as many....A MUST READ for childhood!! "

    " My son wasn't as impressed with this one as I was. But of course, he was reading it to me and he had something else on his mind so the book wasn't that appealing at the time. (I'm sure there was something on t.v. I was making him miss to read w/ mama! LOL) "

    " This book is great fun. It provides the perfect opportunity to use a lot of facial expressions and emotion, mainly exasperation. My kids love it when I read it to them. It also includes a lot of animals that you don't typically find in children's books. ie. opossum, llama, baby moose. "

    " The child in this story is very endearing. She has a tough attitude and isn't afraid to speak her mind. The ending is very sweet and teaches you that compromise works too. I read another review that said it was the reviewers first exposure to feminism, mine too!
    Oh, and Mercer Mayer rocks! "
