Slater also adds visual humor to the story, giving the mischief-making rooster and mouse abundant energy” — Publishers Weekly
“This new version of the cautionary folktale features captivating, meticulous cut-paper and collage illustrations.... Children and adults will appreciate this edition of the literal and figurative age-old adage ‘You reap what you sow’” — School Libarary Journal
