"Blabey's smoothly rhyming text is set in varying typefaces and fonts to emphasize Warren's vexation . . . Modestly informational and totally fun." -- Kirkus Reviews
"The Aussie voice is bouncy and the rhyming couplets entertaining . . . Warren's extreme opposition to being referred to as a 'koala bear' will make viewers laugh, and maybe they'll learn something about koalas, too." -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
Praise for Pig the Winner:
"The goggle-eyed cartoon illustrations are fun, funny, and appealingly grotesque in their exaggerated goofiness, and they are a good match for the rhyming text." -- Kirkus Reviews
Praise for Pig the Pug:
"Blabey's jaunty rhymes will make for some fun read-alouds." -- Publishers Weekly
