Praise
Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, May 28, 2012:
“Grey expertly skewers toy marketing while creating comedic, large-scale dramas in a child-sized world.”

Starred Review, Booklist, April 15, 2012:
“Here's another standout from a popular franchise…The adventures that toys have apart from their owners is a surefire theme worth revisiting time and even more so when done with this much panache.”

Starred Review, School Library Journal, April 1, 2012:
“Grey fills the spreads with color and action, providing plenty of high jinks and hilarious happenings.”

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, March 1, 2012:
“A wonderfully satirical, action-packed romp that echoes the grand tradition of comic books as it ingeniously communicates the complete absorption of imaginative play.”
