* "Stellar. . . . Will surely appeal to a wide audience. "--Kirkus Reviews, starred review * "Certain to fit the bill for just about any child looking for a good laugh or 20."--Publishers Weekly, starred review * "This book supports free choice reading, but has the potential to be the culprit that interrupts silent sustained reading because girls will break out in giggles or outright laughter." -School Library Connection, starred review "Timely . . . girl-power humor for the middle-grade set."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "These stories are bound to engage most readers and tickle ribs."--School Library Journal "Hilarious and heartfelt, this won't only appeal to future funny girls and boys, it'll inspire them."--Booklist
