Booklist Online - Kay Weisman

"...features simple text, large typeface, and plot details that will feel familiar to beginning readers. Davis’ black line drawings depict all the characters as anthropomorphized foxes. Drawings appear on every page, helping to break up longer blocks of text; speech balloons and textual noises (DDDDIIIINNNGG!) further integrate text and art. A humorous look at a perennial playdate problem." - Booklist Online

Kirkus Reviews

"Adding a dash of drama and danger to the social dilemma of playing hostess the series explores, this chapter book navigates the complex maze of developing friendships and the negotiation of compatibility. Uncluttered, grayscale illustrations provide cues without becoming distracting for new readers." - Kirkus Reviews
