...With playful, alliterative, fun-to-read-aloud language ("Whackadoodlewhipperpoo," for example) and its fantastical storyline, this winning, 32-chapter novelette recalls the magical whimsy of Roald Dahl. The author's winsome watercolors lend an ethereal quality to this sweet, funny story that respectfully maps the warrens of a child's psyche as it celebrates the glorious mess that is nature.
