Raves and Reviews

For its simplicity, the text has a gentle rhyme scheme and pleasing sense of rhythm that reward the work of decoding. Elio’s cartoon-style illustrations are bright, cheerful, expressive, and clearly composed, creating a path for readers who may be struggling with early phonics skills to follow the story.

– The Horn Book Magazine, March/April 2024

...This story from the inimitable Dyckman is original and fun, as well as perfect for new readers. A series starter that will have readers asking for more Og, please!

– School Library Journal, February 2024

Rollicking rhymed verses, almost-monosyllabic vocabulary, and super-large type will attract beginning readers, who might also enjoy the wacky, harmless mini-monsters. Very easy words, a small hero, and enough action to keep the pages turning.
