Raves and Reviews

"This is a familiar theme, but Weeks brings a snappy humor to her catalog of indignities, and older sibs in the audience will recognize and giggle at the truths...The illustrations, India-ink linework with a graininess that suggests black crayon and spaces filled with planes of digital color, have a robustness appropriate to determined little Sophie."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
