Praise For…

2019 International Literacy Association/Children's Book Council Children's Choices List

"The spirit of Evel Knievel is alive and well in this retro game show, restructured for the storytime set. ...Kids will eat up the humor. ...All the interaction of an Hervé Tullet book, with a flying clam, a hyperactive monkey, and a cow all thrown in for good measure."
Kirkus Reviews

"Energetic... As characters, typography, and jokes bounce around the pages--bright, silly, and loud--this one proves itself banana-worthy."
Publishers Weekly

"High-energy...sure to be in demand during storytimes."

"Kids will line up for a chance to play."—School Library Journal
