From School Library Journal
From the writer and illustrator of The Bad Seed (2017), The Good Egg (2019), and The Cool Bean (2019), this picture book certainly has a point to make, but it does so with disarming wit and abundant charm. -- Booklist
[T]his tale is timely and helps make the point that a balance of technology and old-school fun might be the way to go. A goofy story about the dangers of too much of one thing, and a lighthearted lesson for all. -- School Library Journal
Text and illustrations are packed with humor. -- Horn Book Magazine
A stylish and witty picture book. -- Sunday Times (London)

Great book for the 3-8yo in your life. In this time of COVID-19 quarantine, this might be a humorous way to talk to your teen (boys) who are in their hidey-holes playing too many electronic games.
By Patty on November 25, 2020
The quality of the hardbound book is a little on the cheap side, the pages are pretty thin. That's my only negative.
