— Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Jane has fun playing within the nursery rhyme’s parameters, whether peeking in on a family of zombies...howling werewolves (dressed in patchwork overalls), or a rattling ‘father skeleton/ And his little skellies eight.’ Manning’s quirky and expressive monster families are 10 kinds of cute.”
