Praise For…

"Funny and expressive . . . a fun addition to most collections, especially where snack-themed stories are in high demand." - School Library Journal

"The snappy text plays it straight, while the illustrations, drawn with graphite and colored digitally, hold the evidence that allows the reader in on the joke. Clever visual details play up the humor, and the characters are full of expression and movement." - The Horn Book

"McGhee, co-author of the Bink and Gollie titles, has an enjoyably stagey flair to her text that will make it a readaloud treat...This is a stylish Western-lite picture book with an enjoyable twang, and viewers will develop a powerful hankering for their own box of treats." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
