Bruce Handy, while writing in The New York Times says, “Her books radiate fun the way tulips radiate spring: they are elegant and spirit-lifting. Among her gifts is an ability to take what in other hands could have been a thin premise — a piglet who hates being messy, in the case of Little Oink; a young spoon who wishes he were a fork, or a knife, or chopsticks, in Spoon — and wring all kinds of sly, nifty variations out of it. … Better yet, her jokes sing with specificity and an understanding of children”.
