    "Pie Rats Ahoy! brought me back to my childhood in a very pleasant way. It's a book written for 2nd graders and I was totally prepared not to like it, but the cat and mice characters in the book were delightful. I would be proud to share such a book with my future children. "

    "To classify this book as one of the best books for young readers is not true in my opinion. The best books for kids would not include stories about misbehaving children or characters going to detention. I prefer more uplifting stories. "

    "My son first read this book in the library. If it was up to him we would have this book on permit check out. Last time we went to library someone else had checked it out and it wasn't available. He was in tears. Well I guess it's about time he had his own copy. Thank goodness we were able to find Oh No, Little Dragon! on Amazon. I can't wait to see how his little eyes light up when it arrives. This is his all time favorite book!"

    "This is a great book to help celebrate your little one's birthday, at pretty much any age! There are pop-up pages starting as soon as you open the book so this is a great tool for engagement for the kiddos! My only issue was, and this is my fault, but I did not look at the actual size of the book - it is "pocked-sized" so it is a small book. There is not going to be room to write any long "birthday" message for your little one to keep in the future. Cute book overall though!"
