★ “McInerny’s debut picture book bounces along with the changing waves of a child’s fantasies…. [with] a clever, satisfying end and a twist that is sure to put a grin on savvy listeners’ faces. This is sure to be a storytime favorite with audiences, and they’ll clamor for McInerny’s next outing.”- Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, STARRED review
“This charmer of a picture book takes an Alice in Wonderland approach to a young girl’s discovery of a hole…A vivacious tribute to creative thinking and play.”- Booklist
“Engaging illustrations set bright, cartoon characters against largely pastel backgrounds. The self-made adventure is reminiscent of Harold and the Purple Crayon with its unpredictable, child-controlled narrative in which imagination takes one around the world and back home again. …An adventure worth sharing.” – Kirkus
“Debut author McInerny [strikes] a genial, why-the-heck-not tone….Lamug ( Petro and the Flea King) portrays Zia as a perpetual motion machine….With a charismatic protagonist like this, it’s a safe bet that this story probably won’t be the last.” – Publishers Weekly
