Reviews

"What first appears to be a Goreyesque cautionary tale for troublesome children comically turns the tables to target inept parents instead. . . . Sarda plays up the story's situational humor in her detailed, vintage-toned watercolors, ensuring that kids get the joke that the parents are the difficult ones, not Duckworth. A lightly macabre, utterly amusing read." -- Booklist
"Sarda's illustrations blend a gothic sensibility with an art deco style." -- Kirkus Reviews
