"A generous font, amusing comic-book-style artwork, the stories themselves, and excellent notes add up to a book that can be thoroughly enjoyed by one child or easily acted out in a readers' theater activity. Very old, very funny stories made evergreen thanks to the graphic format and inventive casting." —Kirkus Reviews
"The Noodleheads are back and as clueless as ever in this latest installment. . . . Arnold's buoyant illustrations and the protagonists' goofy dialogue are sure to entice readers. Part of the joy of the series is the authors' notes at the end explaining the historical basis behind the Noodleheads' foibles." —School Library Journal
