Praise For…


"A welcome series addition that emphasizes familiarity instead of difference and treats its message with an affectionately light hand."
—Kirkus

"Lots of kids will recognize themselves in this book...and teachers and librarians will be happy to have a series to recommend that stars a realistic, likable boy of color."
—Horn Book Magazine

"This is a consistently fun read, complete with endearing characters, charming spot illustrations, and satisfying resolutions. Furthermore, it is a much needed story in which African American boys can see themselves visually and textually reflected in a positive light, completely free of the usual tropes of multicultural literature."
—Booklist

"The warm details of Richard's African-American family are tempered by the realism of life with a bunch of boisterous boys...English continues to earn her place as one of the most reliable early-grade authors, and readers who haven't discovered the Carver School kids will find this a satisfying entry point."
—Bulletin
