* "Hilarious brinkmanship that will have audiences rolling.... This laugh-out-loud picture book should be a staple for all children’s libraries holiday sections."—School Library Journal, starred review
"Riotously funny...will have readers giggling all year long. Skilled storytellers will enjoy hamming up the action as the characters attempt to assert their dominance over their hillside home. Slapstick fun for any season."—Kirkus
"Tarpley’s rigorously rhyming text sustains high levels of animation-style one-upmanship throughout, and Laberis’s digital artwork gets all the seasonal imagery right, with eggs, baskets, gold coins, tulips, and hearts strewn across the green grass, and four-leaf clovers under a rainbow’s glow."—Publishers Weekly
