Pencil-and-wash pictures in muted tones evoke a sense of calm, while splashes of bright color provide a contrast to the tranquil atmosphere; every time the door opens and someone new appears, bright orange spills from the room beyond.

Publishers Weekly, starred review

The delicacy and subtlety of the art only adds to the frisky humor.

The New York Times

This bathroom interlude is the perfect story to share with a child just beginning to read. It has just enough text for the child to tell the story to an adult listener.
