"Readers with siblings will relate to these stories of brothers and sisters who got along and who didn't, and only children may feel relieved to be alone." —Kirkus

"Elementary- and middle-school readers will likely get a kick out of the relatable angle." —Booklist

"Perfect for those who loved Georgia Bragg’s How They Croaked: The Awful Ends of the Awfully Famous and a great companion for National Sibling Day (April 10) lessons or as a read-aloud." —School Library Journal

"Krull’s wry asides and droll observations make for a light and lively narrative, as do Lam’s loose caricatures." —Publishers Weekly

“Suitable for browsing, classroom readalouds, or cover-to-cover immersion, this will confirm attitudes among siblings and leave “onlies” with a sense of envy—or relief.” –The Bulletin
