"Feiffer's characters are unforgettable...the pictures burst with the sort of broad physical comedy that a lot of children just love. It all makes for a witty, laugh-out-loud play on the old favorite about the old lady who swallowed a fly." -ALA Booklist *(Starred Review)*
"Young readers will roar with laughter at this slapstick farce." --School Library Journal *(Starred Review)*
