“The big-nosed cartoon grammar cats are back … The lesson may be beyond some young readers, but the energetic, humorous illustrations and bouncy rhymes are not.” (The Horn Book Guide)
“Using a fast-moving, quick-witted rhyming text … Comically crazy cats are drawn in a childlike style, adding to the book’s giddy factor and making the subject matter appealing to students. Ruth Heller covered pronouns in Mine, All Mine: A Book of Pronouns (Puffin, 1999), but Cleary’s style is definitely more active … A strong purchase for school or public libraries needing to update their 400s sections.” (School Library Journal)
