"With conversational prose and zany, retro-gross illustrations . . . these volumes provide a painless intro to some serious topics . . . Kelley's art . . . is a perfect fit for the material . . ."

Booklist, October 1, 2010

"The colorful, cartoon illustrations will capture the attention of young readers and the photographs echo the seriousness of pollution. Teachers will find this book to be a great class read, especially as supplemental reading material for an Earth Day unit or any study about caring for the earth."

Children's Literature

"All very serious topics presented here with humor and knowledge. Even as kids enjoy the book they will also have a learning experience on what and how they can help handle pollution . . ."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, January 2011

"The text . . . is both informative and humorous . . ."
