Publishers Weekly
“Gloomy feelings don't stand a chance in this snappy picture book about a woman who kicks a 'dreary little funk' with her can-do spirit.”
Horn Book
“The message never outweighs the story here; instead, it gives it depth, plus an extraordinary resonance.”
Family Fun Magazine
“Witty, original, and impeccably executed, this read-aloud may well transform a case of the grouchies into a fit of the giggles.”
Riverbank Review
“A great deal of gritty truth underlies the illustrations. Marla Frazee makes Mrs. Biddlebox's frustration and anger manifest in the lines of her entire body and her crazy plume of curls. A sweetly tart exploration of how one confronts real problems... Frazee and Smith have concocted a work as light and as satisfying as the bad-day cake itself.”
