Reviews

A BookPage Best Children's Book of 2013 "He does not want to go to town, buy a hat or wear a feather. But his horse is quite persuasive."--People magazine, Best New Kids' Books "Best-seller Angleberger of Origami Yoda fame takes on picture books, treating a younger audience to his dry and zany wit. . . . A historical hoot full of goofy, eye-rolling goodness."
--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"As concepts for picture books go, it's hard to think of one cleverer than this absurdist deconstruction of the familiar song. . . . Readers will cheerfully hum their way through the giddily imagined argument and resolution."
--Horn Book, starred review "By book's end, both characters have had meltdowns, prompting a Yankee change of heart and a comically anachronistic trip to town that will have readers laughing."
--Publishers Weekly "In this laugh-out-loud reworking of 'Yankee Doodle, '. . . [Angelberger], author of the Origami Yoda series puts a witty, accessible spin on the familiar song, while Bell's bright, bold gouache images extend the zany humor."
--Booklist "Crankee's grouchy diatribes and his pony's affable responses make for a great read-aloud, especially when paired with a sing-along of the classic tune."
--School Library Journal
