"A gregarious little boy is annoyed that the animals and insects he greets won't speak to him in return. The absurdity of the premise guarantees laughs from readers. They will enjoy watching the boy practice speaking with the animals in their languages, especially the lion, who can't stop laughing... The slick cartoon illustrations are vivid and eye-catching, the pacing of the page turns timed well for humor. A funny read-aloud with a great message." — Kirkus Reviews
"... a perfect tale for social-emotional learning, especially in regard to understanding differences." — School Library Connection
