"A headlong plunge into surrealism ensues when Billy Twitters'
parents punish him by giving him a blue whale. The cleverness is in
the idea's literal-mindedness."--The New York Times Book Review
"Definitely funny and slyly subversive."--Kirkus Reviews
"Rex's goofy illustrations blend the realistic with the fantastic...Young readers will likely enjoy the ridiculous premise, and the many whale facts worked seamlessly into the tale."--School Library Journal
"Tons of fun."--Publishers Weekly
