Praise
"Perhaps best of all is the simple notion of talking with your parents about the problem...Caseley's flat, vaguely primitive art seems simple at first, but it is filled with the details of ordinary life at home and school and lends just the right air of authenticity to the story."
"Subtle it's not, but kids who enjoyed the first one will likely discover enough silliness to please them in this top-secret sequel."
"This isn't going to solve bullying problems, but kids may at least appreciate the reminder that it's happened to others and that they survived."
