"Sharp-edged irony and wacky cartoon-visuals provide newcomer Farrell’s moral tale with some serious wattage." ~Publishers Weekly

"Young readers and listeners will laugh with recognition at Doug-Dennis’s familiar plight and, after a few readings, will be reading it themselves. A promising first book; here’s hoping his second is just as funny." ~Kirkus

"Much like the work of funnymen Jon Scieszka, Lane Smith, and Mo Willems, some of the humor is intended for adults, but the absolute silliness of the story will have young readers giggling as well. Farrell takes the typically dull subject of lying and offers a wacky sheep and elephant friendship as a way of opening up family conversations about telling the truth." ~School Library Journal

"There's plenty of Mo Willems-type fun here, and this just might lead to a discussion of lies as well." ~Booklist
