"A perfect example of a graphic novel designed just for young readers...Children will connect with the realistic dialogue and page-turning appeal of the story. They will be thrilled to enter the world of graphic novels."
    --American Library Association

"Young children will love the graphic-novel format and the sweet, charming illustrations will draw them into the narrative. Fans of Geoffrey Hayes's popular Benny and Penny in Just Pretend won't be disappointed with this sequel."
    --School Library Journal

"In the second comic book-style title to star brother and sister mice Benny and Penny, the fussy duo track down a mysterious 'new kid' who may have climbed over the fence into their yard and stolen Benny's pail (a 'no-no'). But when they meet the culprit (a mole in a polka-dot dress, green flippers and goggles), they re-evaluate the situation. Thought bubbles and dynamic expressions make the simple story come to life; early readers will easily identify the emotional states of the three characters and predict the playful outcomes."
    --Publishers Weekly

"Gloriously evocative, beguilingly beautiful [...] Benny and Penny in The Big No-No! is the kind of pictorial treasure that kids will be drawn back to over and over again."
