Praise

"Armstrong-Ellis fills the page with slime and sludge, and careful readers will even spy monster-themed parodies of works from da Vinci, Cassatt, George Rodrigue, and other artists."
Publishers Weekly
"This is an unconventional book about mothers and love that kids, especially boys, will cherish. Written in a narrative poetry style with colorful glossy pictures, this book offers many examples of couplets. Short passages, filled with gross humor on each page, make it an attention-grabber for early readers; rich vocabulary makes it a super silly read-aloud for older students."
