"A splendid use for a box, indeed." —Kirkus Reviews

"The language is replete with words such as 'hoozie-doozies,' and 'doodads.' It rolls off the tongue with occasional poetic segments such as 'Flippers flapped. Wings whapped.' The unusual characters' devotion to each other and their project is an asset to the book." —Library Media Connection

"Children who have ever created anything out of a box will identify with the trio's ingenuity. The colored pencil-and-gouache illustrations add warmth and humor to the story." —Booklist
