Kirkus Reviews

"Byous explores the domino theory—and they all fall down—to comic effect. . . .The action is continuous, the energy level is in the red zone, and the colors are strong (more pleasing than garish). . . .Byous is also a master of the motion line—almost everything here is jittery or zipping or crashing—and all the little symbols that help readers feel part of the action, like the lightning bolts and stars that attend the mashing of a toe into a chair leg early in the morning. An eye-tickling, cacophonous vocabulary builder." - Kirkus Reviews

School Library Journal - Brooke Rasche, La Crosse Public Library, WI

"A young boy stubs his toe and havoc ensues in this energetic picture book. . . .the illustrations are extremely detailed and children will giggle wildly over this silly tale. The book explores no new ground, but youngsters will enjoy guessing what will happen next and will be pleased with the happy ending." - School Library Journal
