"[A] hilarious reinterpretation of a familiar … story ... a Noah's Ark of assorted hungry … beasties ... will have an audience of readers age 2-7 rolling in the aisles--or the pastry crumbs--and hunting every page to find the … animal action … [G]oes way beyond funny caricature and will leave enraptured gigglers in its wake.” – Midwest Book Review

"Ma MacDonald is having a rough time keeping pests out of her kitchen, and her husband is no help. ... full of fun rhymes and clever plays on words, which makes the book fun to read aloud. The illustrations are filled with creatures getting into Ma MacDonald's food, but not all of them are obvious. ... A real treat." Author Connie Walker

“A delightful learning picture book for tots. Author Karl Beckstrand ... makes identifying the various animals a fun vocabulary building activity. But the humor will bring a smile to the lips of adults as well. ... colorful and charming illustrations. ... I would recommend this book for children two (read to them) and up.” - Author David Wilcox
